Importing and exporting individual files for the software update

To distribute new or modified files, such as files from a hotfix package or custom form archives, using the automatic software update function to the workstations and servers, import the files into the Software Loader database using the One Identity Manager program.

All files of a One Identity Manager installation are stored in the One Identity Manager database with their name, repository, content, and a hash value. Each file's assignment to the One Identity Manager tools, such as Manager or One Identity Manager Service, is logged.

When you import a file, the Software Loader initially determines the file status based on the file information in the database. To test the file version, the file size and the hash value are determined and compared to the entry in the database.

After a file is successfully imported into the database, the software revision semaphore value in the database is updated by the DBQueue Processor. During the next semaphore test, the file is added to the list of files to be updated and is distributed to the workstations and servers.

To equip individual Job servers with the latest software revision manually, you can use the Software Loader program to export individual files from the One Identity Manager database. During the export, the Software Loader checks whether the file already exists in the specified export directory. If this is the case, the file is updated; otherwise, a new version of the file is created.

For more information about updating One Identity Manager and about the automatic software update function, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

Importing custom files into One Identity Manager databases

If you use the Software Loader to import new files into the One Identity Manager database, you should assign the files to a machine role. This ensures that the file are distributed by automatic software update.

For more information about machine roles, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide. For more information about automatic software updates, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

To import files into a One Identity Manager database

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

  2. In the Change & Extend view, select the Import files for software update entry and click Start.

    This starts the Software Loader program.

  3. Select Import into database on the home page.

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

  5. Specify the file to be imported on Select files.

    1. Select the base directory where the files can be found.

      The status and file size of all the files in the selected directory are displayed in the file list.

      Table 47: Meaning of the status

      • Press Shift + select or Ctrl + select to select more than one file.

      • To quickly select all files with Changed version as their status, select Open all directories and Open all modified files in the context menu. Files in subdirectories are only selected if the higher-level directories have already been opened.

  6. On the Select change label page, assign a change label to make it easier to exchange files between various databases, such as the test database, development database and productive database.

    1. Select Assign files to following change label.

    2. Use the button next to the option to select the change label.

  7. The files are loaded straight from the One Identity Manager database.

  8. Specify other file settings on Assign machine roles.

    1. Assign the files to the machine role.

    2. (Optional) For more file settings, click ... next to the file names.
