    CA PPM SAAS 15.6.0

    Need advice/suggestions on the below requirement

    We have a requirement from the customer to update the each occurrence of the word to the new name in entire system (Screens, Reports, Data)

    Ex:  Old Name : International Services
            New Name : International

    We have used the old name in multiple places like OBS, security groups, process, portlets, reports, lookups, NSQLs etc.

    I can think of only manual update of each occurrence to the new name but customer wanted to update via script.

    Any suggestions/pointers or best practices is greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Since you are SAAS then your only option is supported options - either manually like you suggest or scripted via XOG scripts.
    The "word" would probably only be in custom-labels (so NLS settings) which can be updated via XOG I would think for all occurrences. You might want to write a bit of NSQL to find all the occurrences though if you do not intuitively know them (from implementation scripts, saves source code files and so on).

    (on-premise you might have had the (unsupported) option to update the NLS tables directly (CMN_CAPTIONS_NLS) )
