You can create a note and a long text for the session or mark it for archiving or as invalid. You should mark a session as invalid if, for example. you discover after archiving that the data selection was incorrect. Only sessions with the status Archived can be given the status Invalid. Invalid sessions are no longer offered for archive selection.
You can use the report RSARCH_FLAG_SESSIONS to mark several archiving sessions for archiving or as invalid.
When selecting the archiving sessions, you can also differentiate between sessions whose archive files are in a storage system, and sessions for which no accessible archive files exist.
You can use this report, for example, to mark all the archiving sessions for a certain date for archiving or as invalid. This can be useful, for example, as an initial run when archiving archive administration data using the archiving object BC_ARCHIVE.
