Instructions to Update Server Projects After Installed and Deployed

Step by Step Instructions to Update Server Projects After Installed and Deployed

Below we learn how to update existing Clarify server projects already deployed and installed on the EXTOL Business Integrator Server.

This process is a 2 step process
  • 1. Update Production Tag and create new tag to include updated objects
  • 2. Re-Deploy projects to Clarify Server

Step 1 - Updating Trunk and Production Tags

For changes to Production objects the Clarify user will want to do this in their workspace that is connected to the trunk.

For this example the Clarify user has made a change to a Ruleset that is up and running on production.

First step the Clarify user would want to perform is to synchronize their workspace with the trunk. on their SVN Repository.

After the trunk is Synchronized with Repository, the Clarify user will want to re-tag the project for Production. An example of this process is done in: Create Tags for Projects in SVN Repository.

Step 2 - Creating New Tag

After the Clarify user updates the Production Tag, they will want to create a Tag for the update to the Production tag. This tag represents a snapshot in time of Production. If need be, users can backtrack to this point at a later time.

Next the Clarify user will want to connect to the Production server. Once connected the Clarify user will need to drag the updated projects over to the Server Projects. Once deployed the Clarify user can click the Install all deployed project(s).
