Directory Content Migration Tool
The Directory Content Migration Cockpit is an automated tool that provides migration and mass change functionality for PI scenarios and channels. It is a Java Web Dynpro web application based on the Directory Program Interface API. It is delivered as a standard monitoring component for PI.
The tool significantly reduces the efforts of migrating directory artifacts when the system is upgraded.
Its key value is realized through the automation of:
- The conversion of classical scenario configuration to Integrated configuration
- Migration of scenarios between releases having no direct upgrade path
- Migrating from dual stack to single stack
The conversion of ABAP based channels to their Java equivalent
ABAP IDOC adapter converts to Java IDOC AAE adapter
ABAP XI adapter converts to Java SOAP adapter with XI 3.0 message protocol
ABAP HTTP adapter converts to Java HTTP AAE adapter
ABAP WS Adapter conversion is not implemented
- Mass updation of channel properties
- Mass movement of channels
The directory content migration tool automates the steps of the above stated activities, thereby reducing the number of manual steps.
The tool runs on the target, and needs no installation/settings on the source.
The target system should be a 7.3X or higher system. It supports all source system releases starting from XI 3.0.
All scenario migrations are based on Sender Agreements. Those scenarios that do not have a sender agreement are out of scope.
It allows selecting one or multiple classical scenarios and converts them to Integrated Configuration before moving to the target system.
The tool also allows renaming the artifacts during scenario migration, either in the tool or through pre-constructed renaming rules.
Additionally, in case the migration is happening to a fresh system, the tools automatically also creates the dependent artifacts; like channel, service and party.
