BOXI 4 SP4 Promotion Jobs


I am trying to create a job and promote it to the next environment. All the objects get promoted but the actual promotion job I created doesn't show up on the other environment.

Let me details it in here.

I wanted to promote 1 universe and 1 report from Development to Testing environment.

1. Login to CMC --> Promotion Jobs --> Create Job (Job_xxx)

2. Add objects (Universe, Report, Connection) --> Save (Job_xxx saved with the three objects)

3. Click Promote --> Provide Source CMS details and Destination CMS server details

4. Status --> Success

5. I login to the destination and check. All the three objects are promoted. But I don't see the Job_xxx in the Promotion Jobs section of the destination server.

Is it not supposed to be there?

However, when I try to Promote using the LCMBIAR file, it works. I can login to the destination server, pick the file, save it and then promote it from the file.

Is there no other way to see the Job_xxx on any of the destination servers if we take the source server - destination server route?

Thanks for your help.

    Hi, the job is an object in the system, just like a report, folder, user, etc. Since you're not promoting it, it won't be in the destination system. Which is the correct behaviour.

    As with LCM in previous versions, you should have just one of your environments with LCM/Promotion manager (e.g. DEV), and this is where all your jobs reside.

      Hi Kaylan,

      I would suggest that there is no reason at all to promote a job object. I can't think of a single benefit. Imagine a few versions back, you wouldn't install LCM on all of your servers, just so that you could look at a job on any of the servers, would you?
