You can create an import file from an existing Oracle Hyperion Planning application.
To create an import file from an existing Planning application:
User name and password
Planning Web URL
Planning application name
Application server name (The Application server name is the cluster name.)
When Performance Management Architect imports an application, it is imported as an .xml file (metadata.xml). Performance Management Architect runs the transformation and creates an .ads file from the metadata.xml file. Typically, this file is used for troubleshooting purposes. For extremely large applications, we recommend that you do not select this option.
