Best Practice for Promoting content using promotion Management Tool:
Guys Please follow this simple procedure to promote the jobs Easily and effectively.
If assume you have to move some content from Development to Integration platform and if your integration platform is a brand new platform ( just installed BI 4.1 platform) and doesn’t contain anything in it except the Default user groups and the Default folders etc ( which comes with installation ) then If you try to promote a job including the security it wont work. Nothing will be promoted to destination in this case.
As a first step try to create a job which include all the User Groups which are part of security mapping and promote it to the destination.
In the second step you can now select any assets such as Folders or universes along with security by selecting this option:
Things to be Noticed:
promotion Management do not calculate the Security aspects like Users and user Groups, custom access levels etc as dependent objects and this is the reason it do not display the security aspects in the Dependents tab, but it will calculate whine you select the above option as shown in screen shot. If you click on that View security button it will display all the dependent security objects, where as UMT acts completely different in which even security objects are calculated as dependents.
If you Upgrade to BI 4.1 SP2 you can also promote around 2000 objects in each job which is a very good news where as in the previous versions it has been already declared that only 100 objects is the limit per each job.
Please leave your feedback and reply me back If you face any trouble.
