Dashboard Change Management enables users permitted to access Dashboard Change Management to move Dashboard Views from one environment to another (for example, from a development environment to a testing environment). Dashboard Change Management enables you to selectively move individual pieces of your Dashboard (customizations, personalizations, Public and Group views, and so on) so you can introduce incremental updates from one environment to another.
Dashboard Change Management works in conjunction with Managed Reporting Change Management. You move procedures using Managed Reporting Change Management and Dashboard views using Dashboard Change Management.
All Dashboard Change Management export and import files are stored in the drive:\ibi\WebFOCUS81\worp\management directory.
You must be a user with the Dashboard Change Management privilege in order to access the Dashboard Change Management utility.
The Dashboard Change Management utility is only accessible from View Builder.
Alternatively, you can type:
to directly access the View Builder.
The file name format is MMDDYYYY_HHMMSS.zip, where MMDDYYYY is the month, day, and year, and HHMMSS is the hour, minute, second that the zip file was created.
The Save As dialog box opens.
Note: Both the file name and the .zip file extension should not be changed so the Dashboard Change Management utility can recognize the export file and process it correctly.
Note: You can also use FTP to import files from one system to another. If you use the FTP method, place the file to import in the WebFOCUS\worp\management directory of the target system. The file must be transferred in binary format.
The file appears in the list of available WebFOCUS BID Management files.
Note: Importing a large Change Management file may result in an HTTP500 error. If the error occurs, recreate the Change Management extract file as multiple files and import each file separately.
