Importing a Transport Package with the Database Transporter

Importing a Transport Package with the Database Transporter

Before importing a transport package, you can protect individual properties from being overwritten in the target database. For example, you might want to block processing:

  • Configuration parameters and their values should not be overwritten when a test environment is transported to a productive system.
  • Server configurations should neither be overwritten in the test environment nor the productive system during a transport.
  • Passwords of administrative user accounts should neither be overwritten in the test environment nor the productive system during a transport.

To lock single properties for editing

  1. Open the object you want to lock, in the Designer or Manager.
  2. Click on the property name and select the context menu Prohibit modification.
    The input field is locked and grayed-out.
  3. To unlock the property again, click the property's name and select Permit modification.

NOTE: To import transport packages with the Database Transporter, the current user must be authorized to use the program function "Allows transport packages to be imported into the database (Transport_Import)".

To import a transport package

  1. Start the Launchpad and select Transport custom modifications. This starts the program "Database Transporter".
  2. Select Import transport file on the start page.
  3. Enter the connection credentials for the One Identity Manager database, into which you want to import the transport package, on the Select the database connection page.
  4. Select the transport package file browser and click Open.

  5. Specify your import options on the Select transport file.
    1. To create an import log file, set the option Create import log file.

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

    2. To import individual objects, set the option Import objects singly and ignore errors.

      Errors, which might occur during importing are ignored and displayed when importing is complete. If this option is not set, the import is stopped when an error occurs.

  6. Import steps and import progress are displayed on the Importing transport data page. The import procedure can take some time. Calculation tasks are queued for the DBQueue Processor on termination.
  7. If changes have been made to the system configuration, for example, processes or scripts imported, you have to compile the database after the tasks have been processed. Compilation is started automatically once importing is complete.
  8. Click Finish on the last page to end the program.

    NOTE: Use the button to save errors that occur whilst importing.

When you import a transport package with the Database Transporter, the import date and description, the database version and the transport package name are recorded in the transport history of the target database.
