APADM Archive Database Command

The APADM utility can be used to manually initiate archiving of AgilePoint Server data to the archive database. Archiving the workflow data will move the data for old processes from the main workflow database to an archive database. Old processes are those that have been Canceled or Completed for at least a specified minimum number of days.


  • AgilePoint NX OnPremises or AgilePoint NX Private Cloud.
  • Configure a connection to an archive database using the AgilePoint Server Configuration utility.
  • Log on to Windows using a user account with the access rights "Archive Process Instance" in AgilePoint.
