Is it possible to migrate Universe with restrictions

There are 2 Deployment:

DEV:6400(user A,B) and PROD:6400(user X,Y)

Universe U is created in DEV has restrictions applied to it for its users such that user A has connection C1 and user B has connection C2.

Save and migrate the universe U to PROD:6400

Requirement is to migrate the Universe in such a way that for User X the connection should be updated as C1 and for user Y connection should be C2. Also the migration should happen correctly.

Regards,

Velington

    Hi Veli,

    We can migrate Universe with connection restrictions but we need to migrate the users as well.

    I.e. migrate the universe along with the users.

    Hi Velington,

    Universes can be migrated from one environment to another with restrictions.We have to check the option Over Loads in the import wizard or we have to migrate users or groups on which restrictions are applied if they are not present in the destination environment.

    In detail:

    Most commonly the overloads option is not selected during the migration. The overloads are themselves the restrictions. If these are not selected then no restrictions will be moved.

    The overloads option appears on the Import Universes and Connections screen of the Import Wizard. The choice appears as a square check box at the bottom of the list. Left unchecked, the restrictions will not be migrated.

    The other possibility is if the users/groups to which those restrictions apply does not yet exist on the destination system. Ideally, you want the groups all defined at both ends that you use for your permissions and access settings prior to migrating content. If the wizard sees that the restriction defined group or user is missing, it will not move restrictions dependant on that group or user.

    Regards,

    Amar

      It's my understand that this does not work if you are importing users using AD authentication. When we tried, the import wizard fails with errors. When I opened a case with BO, after months of working with numerous techs, I was instructed not to choose the options to migrate users or restrictions (works fine that way). This means I have to manually maintain the security in both dev and prod. Have you found a way around that?

    IDEALLY

    PROD and DEV should be in sync if not so

    PROD should have subset of the objects of DEV.

    In your example given X,Y does not exist in DEV but are there in PROD.

    Migration can be done to Universe along the connection and securities and users.

    With Import Wizard you import these X,Y users from the PROD to DEV.

    and Open the Universe of DEV and @ manage securities you can replace these A,B with X,Y then

    You re migrate these universes, connection and users.

    You will get you result.

    Hi All,

    Iu2019d like to ask your help concerning an issue that Iu2019m charge of resolving. It's concerning the migration of universe overload from a source to a destination. Two unviverse restrictions are applied on two groups in the source: Rest1->Group1, Rest2->Group2.

    These are the steps:

    1- In srource CMC create 2 groups: Group1 and Group2

    2- In Designer apply two row restrictions Rest1 applied on Group1 and Rest2 applied on Group2 (I used eFashion universe)

    3- Export the groups and eFashion universe to destination CMS using Import Wizard (keep the universe overload)

    4- In the destination CMS, Create a new user User1 and add it to the newly imported Group1 AND Group2

    5- In the destination system, Log in InfoView using User1

    6- Create a new Webi doc using eFashion universe

    7- You get this error :

    User rigths not found: See your BusinessObjects administrator (Error WIS 00502).

    does anyone knwo why the user rights cannot be found?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mohamed Ali
