Creating and using transport templates

If you repeatedly need to create transports with certain export criteria, you can use transport templates. You create transport templates in the Database Transporter. Configure a transport and mark it as a transport template. This creates a transport template in XML format.

To create a transport template

  1. Start the Launchpad and log in to the One Identity Manager database.

  2. In the Change & Extend view, select the Transport custom modifications entry and click Start.

    This starts the Database Transporter program.

  3. Select Create a transport file on the start page.

  4. On the Select the database connection page, check the One Identity Manager database connection data and change it if necessary.

  5. Enter the information about the transport file on the Define file name page.

    1. Enter the name of the transport file and change the output directory as required.

    2. Set the Create a transport template file option.

    3. (Optional) To create a log file for the export, set the Create a log file for data export option.

      The log file is saved in the output directory of the transport file.

    4. (Optional) To remove sensitive data from the transport, enable the Create an anonymous transport.

      For example, this will remove information about the database server, the database, and users.

  6. Enter a description of the transport data on the Show and define transport parameters page.

  7. Select the export criteria for the transport on the Define transport data page.

  8. On the Transport template file page, enter the following information.

    • Template file name: Transport template file name.

    • Export path for template file: Repository for the transport template.

    • Description for template file: Detailed description of the transport template.

  9. To start the export, click Next.

    This creates the transport template file and the transport package. The program determines the data to export and displays the progress of the export in the dialog. The export procedure can take some time.

  10. On the last page, the name and storage path for the transport package are displayed. You can open the directory path using the link.

  11. To end the program, click Finish on the last page.

You can use the transport templates when you create transport packages with the Database Transporter or with the DBTransporterCMD.exe command line program. This loads the export criteria from the transport template file.

To use a transport template for exporting

  1. In the Database Transporter, on the Define transport data page, select the Use a Transporter template for selection export criteria.

  2. Select the transport template file and click Open.

Importing data with the Data Import

With the Data Import program, the One Identity Manager offers a simple means of importing data from other systems. The program supports importing from .csv files and importing directly from other database systems. You can import data immediately. You also have the option to import data from customized processes using the import scripts that are created. The import definition is saved so that you can use it for future data imports.

The steps in the program are as follows:

  1. Load export definitions

  2. Select the import method

  3. Configure the import

  4. Create an import definition

  5. Create an import script

  6. Start the import


  • For regular data imports into One Identity Manager, you can also use the ScriptComponent process component.

  • The DataImporterCMD.exe program provides support for imports from the command line.

The data structure of the import file needs to fulfill the following requirements:

  • The data is separated by a delimiter or fixed column widths are used.

  • The data records are separated by a new line.

  • Data that contains a new line is marked with a text qualifier.

  • For more extensive CSV imports, the data in the import file is sorted in advance to resolve the object dependencies.

    NOTE: For imports with small amounts of data, use the sorting options of the Data Import.
