A sample business scenario

The administrator of an insurance company needs to keep track of all the changes impacting the insurance policies, conditions and terms of all the customers registered in the company database. To do it, the administrator periodically runs the audit general and details reports.

To satisfy this request, he creates an audit general report that provides details about which TWS objects have been modified in the database, who modified them and on which date. Then, to find out more details about the changes, he also creates an audit details report.

To accomplish his task, he runs the following steps:

  1. He customizes the property files related to the audit reports, specifying the format and content of the report output.
  2. He schedules jobs to obtain the reports:
    1. The first job generates an audit to be saved locally.
    2. The second job runs a detail report overnight to retrieve more details about the specific changes implemented. The report output is sent using an mail to the analyst. The information collected is used to keep all the insurance branch offices updated with any change and news.
  3. The administrator adds the two jobs to a job stream scheduled to run weekly and generates the plan.
