Move EBI 3 Projects Between Systems with No SVN
Logging and data purging can become an after-thought when EXTOL EXTOL Business Integrator (EBI) 3 Server is set-up. In my experience there can be opposite ends of the spectrum schools of thought in data retention. There can be the business need to keep data for a rolling 365 days. There are some companies that only want to keep data for a rolling 7 days. Below we will address both scenarios.
Copying the Projects
The first step the EBI user needs to take is copying the projects from the system's workspace
File > New > Business Process
Place Copied Projects into New Workspace
Once the projects are copied, the EBI user will need to paste the projects into the destination machine’s workspace.
Create Projects in New Environment
The next step the EBI user needs to take is creating projects with the same exact name in the EBI 3 Studio Workspace on the target machine.
File > New > EBI Project
Once created, the EBI 3 Studio will start building each project from the folder the EBI user pasted in the workspace. The only thing the EBI user may need to do is update the MANIFEST.MF to share the projects with each other again.
