[CLOSED] Run Change Management from a .fex?
Gold member
Has anyone figured out how to run a CM package from a .fex?

I can't use CM_EXPORT.BAT because of security restrictions. I need to automate running a CM export process.

It seems to me, I should be able to make a .fex that runs a CM, then I can schedule it.

Ideas anyone?

What are the security restrictions that prevent you from running cm_export.bat? Are they WebFOCUS security restrictions?

Thank you for using Focal Point!

I was able to set up a trusted ticket for the IP address of the server WebFOCUS is running on, and then use CURL commands (Linux) to login trusted and execute the import or export. (done in v8.2.06)

WebFOCUS RESTful Web Services together with the WebFOCUS Client adapter would work.
The CM_Export example is currently not packaged but it can be added.
