Migration Path Diagram

After you have specified the migration code and description, click Apply to save your work. Then select the migration path and click Template.... This opens the Migration Path Definition window. The left section of the window displays a list of each environment that can be added to the new migration path (environments previously applied to a migration path in a different service domain will not be displayed). The right section of the window is where you arrange the icons to create a graphical diagram representing the sequence of the migration.

To switch the environment’s place in the migration path with another environment, select Swap environment number. Then in the prompt select the number of the environment you want to switch and click OK.

Defining Distribution Environments

Distribution environments allow users to migrate objects to multiple environments distributed over a network at one time. When a user migrates an archive set to a distribution environment, Stat automatically migrates the archive set to a list of connected environments.

You define distribution environments at the migration path level. The first step is to designate certain environments in a migration path as distribution environments. Then you determine which environments you want to connect to them. For example, let’s say you have ten production environments. All of your development work is done centrally, and when ready, changes are migrated out to all the production environments at the same time. Most likely you would define the local or ‘in-house’ production environment as the distribution environment on the migration path and connect it to the nine other production environments.

Although connected to the distribution environment, the other environments are not represented graphically and are not technically part of the migration path. This means that objects cannot be locked in the environments connected to a distribution environment. Likewise, objects can only be migrated to them; you cannot archive objects from these environments.

For more information on distribution environments, see the book, Change Management for Generic Applications, Chapter 3, “Object Migrations.”

Updating CSR Migration Paths with Additional Environments

You can add environments to existing migration paths that are already associated with CSRs. You then have the option of updating the migration path on selected CSRs to include the new environments.

2
Follow the instructions in the section Migration Path Diagram to add environments to the migration path.
3
Click Add new env. to CSR.
4
Select the Update option for each CSR you want to update.
5
Optionally, select the Update Object List option if you want to copy the objects from either the Base or Development environment to the newly added environments. Then select Base or Dev.

PeopleSoft Migration Path Maintenance

The PeopleSoft Migration Path Maintenance table defines migration paths used in the PeopleSoft change management module. Migration paths define the progression of objects from one environment to another. When users add objects to a CSR, they must first select a migration path.

For more detailed information on migration paths, see the book, Change Management for PeopleSoft, Chapter 1, “Object Management.”

When defining migration paths, keep in mind the following:

PeopleSoft migration path security is controlled by the following user class rights:

The PeopleSoft Migration Path Maintenance table is displayed in a standard maintenance window. To open this window, select Maintenance | Domain-Specific | PeopleSoft Migration Paths

The following table defines the fields (columns) in the PeopleSoft Migration Path Maintenance window.
