Life cycle manager setup


I have just installed the Enterprise 4.0 platform and want to get started using the Life Cycle Manager.

I have read the manual but still I wonder if it is possible to make sure that you can only transport objects from Development --> Test --> Production or can it just happen randomly from any system --> any system?

I don't seem to be able to find an answer to this in the documentation.

Any ideas?

    Hi Kim,

    My understanding is that you can set your own Source and Destintaion for object promotion with the LCM- there is no random element to this workflow.

    I'm not sure of your concerns can you clarify please - is there a specific problem?

    I hope this is a very helpful answer to you.

    Kind regards,

      Hi John

      It is still possible to connect directly from DEV to PROD if you want to do so. I realize that you for each LCM enviroment can specify the origin system which to some extent ensure that you don't move object to the wrong system, but the destination can still be any environment.

      My conclusion is that you just have to be careful and think about what you are doing 😊

    Yes, that's correct. I assume the question was asked from a BW background. In BO the user is much more flexible and you can promote across all systems - from anywhere to anywhere.

    I don't see any problems with that because only qualified users should have the rights to promote jobs anyway. And yes, it's much better when one knows what they are doing! 😊 In any case you could always rollback a promotion job.
