Migrating Variable Maps Between Environments
You can move variable maps between environments (such as from development to test) by using the Application Deployment Manager (ADM). See Going Live with Siebel Business Applications for details on using ADM.
You can also export a specific version of a variable map using the Export Version applet menu in the Variable Map Version list applet. To import a variable map, navigate to Administration - Products > Joint Workspace. This is a joint workspace for all types of versioned objects (signals, variable maps, products, product attributes, and so on). For more information on import/export, see Siebel Product Administration Guide.
When exported, a variable map and its child variable maps are exported together into an XML file. When imported through the joint workspace, both parent and child variable maps will be imported and listed in the Joint Workspace view.
NOTE: You must go to each of these variable maps separately to release them.
