Set up ePO Server Tasks for Privilege Management Reporting

There are two BeyondTrust ePO server tasks that you can set up for Privilege Management Reporting:

  • Create the Reporting Event Staging server task
  • Create the Reporting Purge server task

There is an additional server task that you can create if you have a business need to purge the events from the BeyondTrust table in the ePO database only.

We recommend you use the built-in ePO server task called Purge Rolled up Data rather than this server task. This will remove all the events from the BeyondTrust table in the ePO database and the Reporting database.

For more information, please see the following:

Create the Reporting Event Staging Server Task

The Reporting Event Staging server task takes report events from the ePO database and inserts them into the BeyondTrust Privilege Management Reporting database. You need to create this task to view BeyondTrust reports.
