Move Personal folders from Dev to Prod

I tried moving personal folder reports using Promotion management job from dev to prod.

The job got failed and the error is "Must create object under its defined root folder"

I don't want dependencies to override in prod,all the required dependencies are already available in prod.

Can someone please shed some light on this issue.

    It's possible that the user (and the user's favorites folder) has a different CUID in the two environments. This can happen if the user was created in each environment, rather than being created in one and migrated to the other. If this is the case, you will need to move the folder into a public folder (that is common between the two environments), migrate it, then put it in the favorites folder.

    (answer to recent comment posted as answer)

    LCM wont let you overwrite an object having the same name if the CUID is different. One option you have is:

    1. Rename the user in the target environment (let's say from USER1 to USER1-old)
    2. Perform the migration, this will create a new USER1 user in the target.
    3. Move the reports from USER1's personal folder to USER1-old's personal documents.
    4. Delete USER1 in the target environment.
    5. Rename USER1-old back to USER1.

    Hi Sasi

    Can you confirm if both DEV and PROD are in same version (including patch)?

    Also, did you get a chance to go thru this - https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3869492

    Hi

    Can you not promote it by using CMC? Promote it from one CMS to another or promote it to an BIAR file and import it again on prod.

      The user has different CUID in dev and prod.Instead of synching production back to development,is there any turn around to move the personal folders content from dev to prod with different CUID.

      Hi Manikandan,

      This works well for one time to move our reports,but down the line when ever user creates a new personal report we need to repeat this process.

      one more query,when we are promoting personal folders do we need to add user and security profiles as well if we have different CUIDs in dev and prod.

      When i move the reports to prod,the reports are not working due to security issues.
