22 Migrating to the Same or a Different Environment

You may need to migrate or clone from a test to a production instance or from a production instance of the service to another production instance.

There are two ways to migrate: using the Tools, then Migration option in the user interface or by using the EPM Automate Utility

When you start a migration, Account Reconciliation creates a snapshot export job. If any jobs are running when a snapshot export job is started, it waits until the current job completes. If the current job does not complete in 10 minutes, the snapshot export job is marked a Failed. On the other hand, if Account Reconciliation attempts to start another job (system or user-created) while a snapshot export job is running, the status of the new job will be set to Delayed. After the snapshot export job completes, the new job is run.

Migrating Using the Migration Option

To migrate using the Migration option in the Tools:

  1. Select Tools, then Migration.
  2. Select Financial Close Management to migrate a Account Reconciliation snapshot.

    Note:

    Account Reconciliation Cloud does not support migration of snapshots from the latest service version to an earlier service version (for example, when moving snapshots between test and production pods during the window when test is upgraded before production.). Migration between the same versions will still be supported. Some objects, such as Profiles, may still be moved from the latest to an earlier version outside of migration snapshots by exporting them from the latest service version and importing them into the earlier version.

    Note:

    You can also use the Migration option to migrate Data Management artifacts or Groups and Members. It is a best practice to select all three options.
