Importing, exporting and copying audits with DrAuditor. It’s all about saving time!
If you are not sure where to begin auditing or just looking for a major time saver, DrAuditor allows you to import, export and copy audits.
The Copy routine allows users to make copies of existing audits. This can be helpful if you want to keep an existing audit along with its run information and results but also want to run another identical audit. It is also helpful if you have an existing audit but would like to make some small changes like adding indexes or removing a few tables.
Exporting an audit allows you to export the structure, content and rules of an audit. This can be saved and then imported into another database binding. This can also be used as a method for backing up your audits in case something happens to the DrAuditor SQL database.
Importing audits is the process of copying in an existing audit. These can be audits you have exported and saved or audits provided by Blue Elm. One or many audits can be imported at a time for the ultimate time savings.
Blue Elm provides some common pre-canned audits on its website under Forums. You can add or remove tables from these preexisting audits or just import and run.
These audits range from meaningful-use table groups, to core tables (most used tables), to a nightly integrity checker (common tables with indexes pre-build in for fast nightly or weekly auditing).
