    Please check the following Wiki to ensure you properly upgrade your 4.0 jobs to 4.2 prior to "promoting".

    Hi,

    Promoting jobs from lower version of BODS to higher version is through Import\Export of job ATL's

    1. Back up \Export all objects of a job of the existing job objects in ATL format to any of your local drive.

    2. Create a new repo in the same older version and then Import the backed up ATL's.

    3. Using Repo Manager of latest version ( provide the new repo metadata details ) and then upgrade the repo. This ensures the objects which are present in the new repo are upgraded to latest version without any issues.

    if you are using the lower version repo then creation of new repo is not required. you can directly upgrade the lower version repo.

    Recommended SAP Job promotion through diff environment [ Dev,QA,PPD and Prod ] is through central repo concept, you can also carry out this option through ATL import\export option as well and also we have inbuilt SAP object promotion which also helps to carry out the same.

    Regards,
