App / report migration (export & import)

A common topic is how to promote reports from lower environments (like Dev) to higher environment (like UAT/Prod).

Arcadia provides artifact export / import feature to facilitate this workflow all through he UI. Details of the functionality can be found here:
http://documentation.arcadiadata.com/4.3.0.0/#pages/topics/app-migrate.html

Here’s a general overview along with important watch-outs as you use the feature:

We detect existing artifacts and evaluate if they need to be updated or new objects created.

Let’s assume you have Dev environment and Prod env. The Prod env is empty.

As you create in Dev you can promote to Prod. This is how the system will handle the workflow (notice you are always exporting from Dev and importing to Prod).
