Business Objects - AURA-IRB Data Warehouse Load and Maintenance Schedule
This article provides information about the AURA-Grants Data Warehouse Load and Maintenance Schedule.
As of April 16, 2012, the AURA-IRB data warehouse is available to Business Objects users 24x7 with a 10-minute nightly outage window at midnight for routine Business Objects backup. Periodic system work and other database maintenance activities are typically scheduled to occur outside regular business hours of 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday.
Data from the AURA-IRB module will be updated nightly; data from the previous night's update becomes available at 6:00 AM each morning. Users are notified by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if a nightly update fails.
NOTE: System problems or other delays in maintenance activities could result in unanticipated outages beyond the published schedule.
Conversion and Data Refresh
The AURA-IRB reporting system is built on a data warehouse that is refreshed nightly with data from the AURA-IRB module. The AURA-IRB module contains data that was converted from earlier IRB systems; limited data is stored for reporting related to these studies, including their legacy activity history.
