Change Management (CM) is designed to move content,
or content and security resources, from lower WebFOCUS 8 environments
to higher WebFOCUS 8 environments. For instance, CM would be used
to move content or content and security resources from DEV to QA,
and then from QA to PROD. In this documentation, DEV, QA, and PROD
are used in the examples to reinforce CM concepts and best practices.
QA is assumed to be a mirror of PROD.
Note: CM packages are useful for troubleshooting content,
as opposed to troubleshooting issues related to the WebFOCUS 8 infrastructure.
