Report Type Migrator

The Report Type Migrator contains the additional option Replace Existing special cmds? If the validation to be migrated references PPM special commands (including parent and child special commands) that already exist in the target PPM instance, you can choose to replace them (or not). (The default value is No.) Regardless of their values, PPM automatically re-creates special commands that are missing from the destination instance.

Configuration Considerations

The Report Type Migrator also transfers the following information:

  • Special commands referenced by command steps

  • Validations referenced by fields

  • Environments referenced by validations

  • Special commands referenced by validations

  • Special commands referenced by other special commands

  • Ownership group information for the report type

    Note: The Report Type Migrator transfers references to environments from validations, but does not create an environment. If the referenced environment does not exist in the destination instance, the migration fails. If this occurs, you must create the missing environment manually in the destination instance.
