Migration History Wizard

You use the Migration History Wizard to locate any migration that has been performed in Stat. This allows you to view all changes that have occurred in a particular environment or in all environments. The wizard searches for all migrations that meet your selected criteria. For example, you can search by a specific date range, service domain, release label, or migration path. Access to this wizard is controlled by user class rights.

Select Migration Mgmt | Migration History Wizard.
In the Module field, select PeopleSoft, Oracle Applications, or Generic Applications, depending on the change management module you are using.
In the Service Domain field, select a service domain.
(Optional) In the Release field, select a release label.
(Optional) Select the State Based Report option.
Click Next>.
If you selected the State Based Report option, the Migration History Wizard includes migrations in the results window that are documented in environments due to environment refresh events.
The Migration History Report window resembles the Migration Console and functions much the same way (see Migration Console ). The Migration History Report window, however, displays more information about the migration, including:

Archive Set

The number of the CSR the archive set is associated with followed by the archive set number.

Archive Type

The type of archive set. Options include Base, Interim, and Final.

Archive Description

The description that identifies the archive set.

Object Count

The number of objects contained in the archive set.

CSR Description

The entry in the Title field of the associated CSR

CSR Type

The type ID of the CSR.

Migration Path

The migration path used to migrate the archive set.

To Working

Indicates if file objects in the archive set (if any) were migrated to the developers’ working directories.

To Distributed

Indicates if the target environment is a distribution environment.

Object Archive Search Wizard

You can use the Object Archive Search Wizard to locate all CSRs which contain an archive copy of a specific object. While the Object History Wizard finds all CSRs with which an object is associated, this wizard locates only those CSRs which contain an archive set with that object. This wizard is useful in finding object versions for recovery purposes.

Select Object Mgmt | Object Archive Search Wizard.
Click Next>.
In the Module field, select PeopleSoft, Oracle Applications, or Generic Applications, depending on the change management module you are using.
In the Source Environment field, select the environment from which the object was copied.
In the Object Type field, select the object type of the object.
In the Service Domain field, select a service domain.
Click Next>.

From the Search Results window, you can do the following:

Compare two different versions of an object archived on different archive sets by selecting the two versions you want and clicking the Compare button. This opens Stat’s object comparison tools (either the Object Compare Wizard or the File Comparison Tool, depending on the class of the selected object). For detailed instructions on using the object comparison tools, see Object Comparison Tools .

Rapid Recovery Window

In addition to migrating archive sets in a CSR, Stat also assists with object recovery. This is done in the Rapid Recovery window. In this window you can migrate an archive set to any environment, not just those environments on the CSR’s original migration path. You can also recover an archive set from a closed CSR where there are no locks on the objects.

Since you can migrate to environments not on the CSR's migration path, any security right having to do with a migration path does not apply to the Rapid Recovery window, such as the security right that allows a user to migrate to the Base environment.

The Rapid Recovery window should only be used in emergency situations since it overrides several CSR migration rules, including migration approvals, workflow status, and object locks. Because overriding object locks creates the risk of overwriting another user’s work, access to the Rapid Recovery window is controlled by its own security right and should be restricted.

When you use the Rapid Recovery window to migrate an archive set to an environment that is not on the original migration path, the migration is documented in the Migration History window but not the CSR where the archive set originated. On the other hand, if you do recover to an environment on the original migration path, the migration is documented in the CSR as it would be normally.

Select Migration Mgmt | Rapid Recovery.
(Optional) In the Description field, enter a unique description of the migration.
In the Target field, select the migration’s target environment.
(Optional) Select the Stop on Error option if you want the Stat Central Agent to terminate the migration at the first error it encounters.
The Maintenance Mode field is disabled if you are on an earlier version than AD.I. For more information on Maintenance Mode, see your Oracle Applications documentation.
Click the Browse button (...) next to the Select CSR field.
Click Migrate>.

Release Recovery Window

Like the Mass Migration window, the Release Recovery window allows you to mass migrate archive sets based on application release labels. Unlike the Mass Migration window, however, mass migrations conducted in the Release Recovery window override workflow rules, approval requirements, and object locks. This can be an effective way of preserving crucial object definitions during an emergency when time is a factor. Due to its ability to circumvent security measures, access to the Release Recovery window is controlled by specific user class rights and should be restricted to development managers.

To open the Release Recovery window, select Migration Mgmt | Release Recovery. The procedure for mass migrating archive sets based on application release labels in the Release Recovery window is exactly the same as it is in the Mass Migration window, except in the Release Recovery window you can mass migrate any eligible archive set to any environment you want, regardless of workflow rules, pending approvals, or object locks that may exist in other environments (but not, however, regardless of your environment access permissions, as specified for your user account in the User Maintenance window). For more information on mass migrating archive sets, see the “Object Migrations” section in the appropriate change management chapter.
