How the Administrator can set the Carerix application to make a database dump

Updated over a week ago

In some cases, you require access to your entire database:

  • To migrate to other system/databases.

  • To create an analysis or report with external SQL-based tools.

This database dump does not contain attachments (example: resumes), only the name of the attachment will be exported.
The export will not export the attachments (example resumes), it will however export the name of the file.
When you would like a database dump that includes the attachments (add extra cost) then please contact our Customer Success Team.

In your role as Carerix administrator, you can activate your own database download: During the night a file will be created containing a "dump" from your database; this file will be available for download (from a Carerix server) the next day.

Settings for Database dump

  1. Log in as an Administrator.

  2. Go to "Settings".

  3. Go to Block "General".

  4. Enter field:
    "databaseDumpFilename" enter a filename for the database dump

  5. Enter field:
    "databaseDumpPassword" enter a password for the database dumponly
    (letters, digits and "_"-symbol, no spaces).

The dump is created the next night.
