Rules export issue

Hi All,

I have developed some rules in my local system version SAP IS 4.2 SP4. But now I want to reuse them to some other system having SAP IS 4.3 SP3 version.

Is it possible to acheive this?

I have attached one sample error screenshot encountered when trying to import rules in lower version of SAP IS.

Do reply asap.

Thanks,

Krishna

    Hi,

    To migrate content between IS landscapes you must have exactly the same version installed across, as well as for any pre-requisite such as IPS and DS.

    Hi,

    I suggest to create same rules in IS 4.3.

    Refer SAP Note 2143462 - Unable to import project (UIM-10225) - Information Steward 4.x


    Regards,

    Dave

    I assume you mean IS 4.2 SP3, not 4.3. We had to do this in an upgrade scenario when the lower level environments were higher than production.

    Regardless, it is possible to move rules between different versions. To do this you need to manually edit the XML in the Rules export ZIP file to match the target version. Then import as normal. I assume this is limited to functionality of the same version (eg IS_UNIQUE only exists in 4.2) and backward compatibility would only allow you to migrate so far. Anyway, if you must do it then it does work.

    Or you can manually recreate rules.
