    Hi James,

    PLease correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I understand you want to backup a universe created in IDT, export it to LCMBIAR and later when it is updated you want only the updated metadata to be added to the existing LCMBIAR ?

    It is not not possible to achieve what you want using Promotion Management.

    Promotion Management can be utilized to backup objects in .LCMBIAR files, but it requires that every object in the .LCMBIAR file be re-imported.

    Better approaches for backup and recovery have been mentioned in the blog below in the Backup section:

    Hope this helps!
