Optimizing CMA - Linking the Jobs

Anthony Shorten
Senior Principal Product Manager

One of the recent changes to the Configuration Migration Assistant is the ability to configure the individual jobs to work as a group to reduce the amount of time and effort in migrating configuration data from a source system to a target. This is a technique we use in our Oracle Utilities Cloud implementations to reduce costs. Basically after this configuration is complete you just have to execute F1-MGDIM (Migration Data Set Import Monitor) and F1-MGDPR (Migration Data Set Export Monitor) jobs to complete all your CMA needs.

The technique is available for Oracle Utilities Application Framework V4.3.0.4.0 and above using some new batch control features. The features used are changing the Enter algorithms on the state transitions and setting up Post Processing algorithms on relevant batch controls. The last step will kick off each process within the same execution to reduce the need to execute each process individually.

Set Enter Algorithms

The first step is to configure the import process, which is a multi-step process, to autotransition data when necessary to save time. This is done on the F1-MigrDataSetImport business object and setting the Enter Algorithm on the following states:

Status Enter Algorithm
PENDING F1-MGDIM-SJ
READY2COMP F1-MGOPR-SJ
READY2APPLY F1-MGOAP-SJ
APPLYING F1-MGTAP-SJ
READYOBJ F1-MGOPR-SJ
READYTRANS F1-MGTPR-SJ

Set Post Processing Algorithms

The next step is to set the Post Processing algorithms on the Import jobs to instruct the Monitor to run multiple steps within its execution.

Batch Control Post Processing Algorithm
F1-MGOPR F1-MGTPR-NJ
F1-MGTPR F1-MGDIM-NJ
F1-MGOAP F1-MGDIM-NJ (*)
F1-MGTAP F1-MGDIM-NJ (*)

(*) Note: For multi-lingual solutions, consider adding an additional Post Processing algorithm F1-ENG2LNGSJ to copy any missing language entries

Now you can run the Monitors for Import and Export with minimum interaction which simplifies the features.

Note: To take full advantage of this new configuration enable Automatically Apply on Imports.
