Import of Metadata and the Order Level

Hi,

 

 

We have migrated the Environment from SAS 9.1.3 to SAS 9.4 and now the jobs/flows/catalog are migrated to Prod Environment(9.4).

 

Now I want to migrate all the metadata available in Prod to other Environment . I need to understand , what are all the metadata objects to be migrated?

 

1. Flows

2. Jobs

3. Catalog(if available)

4. Libraries

 

Is there any Order should be used to migrate and any other things should be  added in the above list.

 

Note : Migration from 9.1.3 to 9.4 was done by others , so I didn't involve in that activities.Need to understand what activities should be carried out.

General recommendations for the sequence of migrating metadata objects:
1. Security objects (Access Control Templates, users, groups, roles)
2. Libraries
3. Tables
4. ETL flows
5. Mid-tier content (reports, etc)

 

Catalogs will most likely be required to be recompiled from their source on the target platform

For a 9.1 to 9.4 migration, security objects may have to be recreated. (And there were no roles in 9.1)

Hi @Helannivas

 

 

You can follow the order as below.

 

ACTs

Groups

Roles

Users

Libraries

Jobs - Note that you create deployment directories before.

Flows

 

I am not sure on the catalogs.

 

Hope this helps,

Thanks.
