Copying contents between central repositories
Contents of one central repository cannot be copied to another central repository directly. Rather, you must use your local repository as an intermediate repository.
To copy the contents of one central repository to another central repository
1. Activate the central repository whose contents you will copy.
2. Get the latest version of all objects in this active central repository so they exist in your local repository.
3. Activate the central repository into which you want to copy the contents.
4. The first time you copy the contents, add the objects from your local repository into this central repository. However, if you must re-copy the contents of one central repository into another (for example, during your testing phase some part of a job was reassigned to the development phase for redesign), the process is slightly more complex:
- i. First check out specific objects without replacement from the second central repository.
- ii. From your local repository, get the latest version of the objects from the first (for example,development) central repository.
- iii. Then, instead of adding, check in the updated objects from your local repository to the second (for example, test) central repository.
