Have you seen cases where the differences are consequential?

Not yet. But I'm not looking at things with the same breadth as you are.

Like Jim, we've been exporting the latest version of objects out of central repos using al_engine. This is in support of automated CI testing. Just because something isn't supported doesn't mean it's not available. icon_wink.gif

Related question: has anybody figured out a way to export a specific table object via al_engine? I see, as of SP6, looking at al_engine /?, that you can delete a table object, but am wondering if the same syntax might work for exporting? Going to try...

Jeff, it's been some time since I had to try new things from the command line. I do remember there being a problem with exporting tables but it was so long ago I don't remember the details. I'll be watching for your results.

Hi,

Is it possible to export DS objects/jobs from central repository using al_engine command in BODS 4.2.?
If it is possible, then please share the script/command with me.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Jim:

Exporting the objects from Central to local repo by using command line is available now?

I see from your post, its possible by exporting to atl file from central through al_egine and then use al_engine to import the atl file to local repo. But would like to know whether any direct approach is released?

Hi folks.

I'm also looking at implementing a CI pipeline in order to automate promotion of data services objects.

We're on ds 4.2 sp 11. I'd be keen to know if others have successfully achieved this on this version, and if there are any things to look out for.

I.e. atl or xml? Reading the comments perhaps xml strips out cosmetic info so might not be the best format?

Thanks

Post subject: Re: Exporting Directly from Central Repository using AL_ENGI

I've managed to get something that works reasonably well, but I was wondering if anyone who has done this, automated any kind of manual locking of the AL_USERS table in the target repository during a promotion?

We all know when you log into designer, if someone else tries to log into the same repo, they get an error saying that someone is already logged in. It seems like it would be a trivial operation to issue an update statement to first check if AL_USERS has any logged in users, and if anyone is logged in then exit the program, otherwise update AL_USERS to set that a user is logged in.

Has anyone else done this?
