Identifying Data Migration Tasks
After completing a development environment upgrade, review each of the following types of data or files and identify changes that you must migrate to the test or production environment. Although this is essentially a data migration task, it should be considered part of the upgrade process.
NOTE: If you are upgrading from Release 5.x or 6.x, you must modify your existing data migration processes to include any new objects introduced in Release 7.x.
To migrate files and data from one environment to another, use one of the following utilities, as appropriate for the type of data you are migrating.
- Repository Migration. See Siebel Tools Reference for detailed information.
- EIM. See Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager Administration Guide for detailed information.
- Export/Import. See the relevant guide on the Siebel Bookshelf for the type of data you are migrating for information about utilities provided as standard functionality in modules such as Business Process Designer, Product Configurator, and SmartScripts.
- Development to Production. Also see Developing and Deploying Siebel eBusiness Applications for information about migrating data from a development environment to a test or production environment.
