Thank you. I did not understand if the Promotion Manager also performs the passage of security (users and profiles).

yes it does. It does everything related to properly moving content from one system to another. This includes security and users


Thank you Denis.I have another problem I can not solve. I use BO 4.2 for to bring objects from BO 4.1 to BO 4.2. Once I have selected an object from BO 4.1, can I see the dependencies of the object I want to promote even if it is of a different version of BO? When I do it I go wrong:. Here' more of the error msg:

Sorry, Promotion management application is unable to process your request. The error from the server is: Failed to get dependencies of the job.(PRS 00048)


a. You should ask this as separate question.
b. You should not see the error in your workflow, this error means that something is not good either in your source or with promotion management.
If you search for this error in SAP knowledge base - there are several possible explanations.
