 You can archive some incidents using web archive (you xill find lot of threads about webarchive on this forum) and then delete them from database. Just be sure to store your web archive in a safe place. You can also simply delete some incident which were assess as false positive.

The erro is saying that you have over 1000000 incidents in the DLP system. That is a LOT of incidnets to keep.

You should be deleting these incidents overtime.. the idea is to keep incidnets in the system that are needed for legal purposes over a period of time. Most of my customers fdo not keep incidents in the system over 1 to 2 years and will delete them from the system completely. The ONLY ones to keep are the ones that are under investigation or are needed for Legal purposes.

The system is giving you this warning for reports will take longer to run and can impeded the perfromance of the Reporting aspect of the console.


Hope this makes sense.

If this solves your questions please marked as solved.

Dear Ronak and Stephane,


Thank you very much for your solutions. Yes, I think so. However, I don't know what useful Oracles SQL commands should I use here to backup old incidents. Could you please show me in more details step by step?

Thank you very much in advance :)

 you should use DLP UI to do it because incident are stored encrypted in DLP database so if you want to keep a track of them it is better to do it via DLP UI.

In menu System / Incident Data / Web Archive you are able to define archive name and use a report to select incident you want to extract (so you have to define a report before). and then click on create, this will archive your incident (if you have a lot it could take lot of time and also a huge disk volume). This web archive is created on enforce server in directory "Archive".

 Then you can use your report previously used to define your archive content, and click on "select all" then select "Delete Incident" in "incident actions" dropbox.

It's great. With over 1,000,000 incidents, it will take long time to finishsad. I hope the incoming version 12.xx will have a better way to manage incidents.

Anyway, thank you very much for your help.
