Creating a Risk Shapshot

All online reports are part of the Risk Snapshot. To schedule this job, select Schedule Jobs > Risk Snapshot.

The following information needs to be populated to schedule a risk snapshot:

  • Repeat - Used to determine if this is a one-time job or scheduled to reoccur. The options are to not have it repeat and just run once, or schedule it to run monthly, weekly, or daily.

    Sailpoint recommends running the risk snapshot at least monthly to ensure you are capturing the historical information around user access and monthly utilization data since SAP only retains it for three months.

    Many organizations choose to run the snapshot more frequently, such as weekly if weekly transports to production are done or even daily if a project is taking place that has constant updates being made in SAP.


If you schedule a job to run on a recurring basis, the Security Extract and Utilization Extract can only be set to use live data.

You can review all recurring jobs by selecting Recurring Tasks from the left navigation.

  • Report Name – Enter a name or review and accept the default report name. The default includes the date/time, user who scheduled the job, and the rulebook included.
  • Email when done - Email to receive notification of completion of the risk snapshot job. This defaults to the user who is scheduling the snapshot.
  • Security Extract - Select if you want to use live data, which will run a new security extract to base the snapshot on, or a previously completed security extract.


The Use Live Extract option schedules a new security extract to be run as part of this job. It must complete before the scheduled job can continue, so it can take a bit longer than using an existing extract.

  • Rulebooks - Select which rulebook(s) to use for the analysis.
  • Months of Utilization - Select how many months of utilization to include on the snapshot. This defaults to the maximum, which is 12 months, or you can select a shorter time.
  • Live Utilizations - If selected, the system will run a new utilization extract for any months missing within the period selected to include. Note that SAP stores this data for three months by default so you will most likely get blank extracts for months older than three.
  • Include Types and Statuses - Select the checkboxes next to the types and statuses you want to include

After you select Submit, you can view the status of your snapshot report on the Activity History page.
