Migrating Repository Data from Development to Test
This section explains how you migrate repository data from a source environment to a target environment. Following the NREC example, the source is the development environment and the target is the test environment.
You use the Repository Migration Configuration Utility to migrate data when there has been a configuration or a database schema change in the source environment, such as adding columns to a base table (read Configuring the House and Opportunity Entities). The Repository Migration Configuration Utility exports the repository data from the source environment, imports the object definitions, and then updates the physical database schema of the target database. The result is that the database schema and object definitions of target environment matches source environment.
NOTE: If you only need to migrate user interface and business object definitions, you can use the Export and Import Repository Utilities.
