Hi All,

I am trying to create a change management package using restful services. I didn't find how we can create a 'New Scenario' using restful. I see if the Scenario exists then we can use restful services to export.

I have a list of FEX/MASTER/HTML etc file names in excel and want to create a CM package for all those files through an automated process. I was looking at Restful service options to do this. But unfortunately, I did not find any info on how we can create a New Scenario for ChangeManagement, Add files to that Scenario and Save it before we export.

Anyone having any ideas please help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks,
Rao.

Is it an option to select the folder with children instead of selecting the content individually?

Hi Frans,

No, We can't select the entire folder as there may be n number of files in that folder but we should deploy only the files that are related to the release.

Thanks,
Rao.

Has anyone successfully automated Deployments in WebFOCUS using Restful or something else? Please let me know as we're researching to make deployments easier.

Thanks!

Pawan,

I built an integrated deployment system for and with one of my Customer.
This was written on 8105m and is currently migrated to 8206.

Here is a high level description :

WebFOCUS Client systems have a Reporting Server installed on the same machine
The application presents users with a list of domain/folders which they can transport
the application creates a scenario.xml in the the export directory which is the "key driver" for change management
then it uses a restfull call to export, and it uses ssh/scp to copy the package to the target system and runs a restfull call to import

The end result is that users who have access to this application can transport objects from one authorized system to another.

Thank you Jean-Claude, would you be able to guide us with where to start if we are trying to create a system to automate deployments where the user can click and push things up the environments?

Pls let me know
Thanks in advance!
