update new rules from new serc update

we have all rules mapped for the current serc 2014 . Now with the 2015 serc updates how do I know which rules has been updates/changed/introduced and update in the server and expert admin and in cgsdam . DO I need to delete all the existing ones from all these places and reconfigure everything one by one ? what is the best and optimal way to do this ?

also how Do i know which databse needs to be updated and replaced ?

    Hi Krishna,

    • Step 1): Compare all the version numbers. Then you will know what has been updated
    • Step 2): For all updated versions, check what is new or changed. 2014 is quite old, a number of rule sets have become obsolete or have been replaced by others.
    • Step 3) For all new or changed ones, check whether you need to do any changes in the corresponding databases (don't forget the externvalues!)
    • For all new or changed ones, bring in all necessary transports (that may include transports from the updates between 2014 and the latest one) and do all necessary settings in customizing. Don't forget the transports from other parts of SERC like property tree etc.

    Once that all has been done, make a backup of all your rule set files from the expert server. The easiest way to update all files there and registering the rule sets is to run SetupERC_GLOBAL.exe on the expert server, but read the instructions first!

    You have to make sure that at least your property tree is up to date. That means that you have to bring in ALL property tree updates since 2014!

    • Hi Krishna,

      The program mentioned will not elete anything, but install and register the latest versions of all rule sets on the Expert server. This is the same as doing it in CGSADM. So my suggestion would be:

      1. Make a backup copy of your current rule set files
      2. Delete the rule set files from the rules directory on the Expert server
      3. Execute SetupERC_global.exe
      4. If you have made any changes to any rule set file, reimport this one into the rules directory on the Expert server
      5. smile 😊

      You wull still have to check manually which rule sets are not needed anymore or have been made obsolete in order to adjust the user exits.

    Dear krishna

    According to my knowlegde: if you are buying content (as discussed in some parallel thread) you should get "additional information" like pdf files from content provider (e.g. SAP) etc. In these files you should get clear indication about next steps to be done (e.g. customizing set up etc.)

    Part of the "documentation" should be a list of

    a.) new rule sets

    b.) changed rule setes

    etc.

    For:

    also how Do i know which databse needs to be updated and replaced ?

    I assume your refer to "mdb"- Same story as before. The SAP document (if you use SAP content) should clearly indicate next steps etc.
