Promotion Manager "Automation" or really Self-service


We have been tasked with creating a process whereby users can migrate their own universes and reports through our environment structure. The only real requirement that we have at this point is that the users should not use the CMC to access Promotion Management to perform the migrations.

In pursuit of this objective we are attempting to obtain information on this process. I have the following questions:

1. Has any one attempted to put together something like this?

2. What interface did you use with Business Objects? i.e. .NET SDK, java SDK, WebService, RESTful Webservice

3. What challenges did you run into?

We are presently exploring using a script that utilizes the command line tool lcm_cli.bat, but it has some limitations.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

The basis for this work is to free up our Administrator's time from doing object promotions and focus on making out system run more efficiently by having a utility to allow users to promote their own content.
