Import HPOO flows

    Hello community!

    I need to convert some HPOO flows to Automic workflows. Any ideas? Has anyone ever dealt with HPOO x Automic?

    We migrated from another product into this one back in 2012, and decided the best solution was to build from scratch.  We designed a bunch of re-usable models and templates that would solve this datacenters most common needs, and trained staff in how to clone and configure those models.

    If you really wanted to build an automated transfer process, I suppose one could do some reverse engineering.  You could build an Automic workflow, use the "export" function against it, and then use the XML output file as a model for what you need to build from HPOO for later importing into Automic.

    Automic also has a transport-case facility for mass unloading/loading of objects, but its proprietary file format renders it not very useful for your needs.

    Automic is also designed to support object re-use. We developed a library of standard utilities (FILE.COPY, FILE.MOVE, FILE.DELETE, etc...) so they are coded once and used many times.

    There are multiple ways to set up error handling in Automic too.  Which one is best will depend upon your specific needs.

    Hi Pete,

    Thanks for your answer. Actually, this case is for a long time Automic user that has to import a critical HPOO flow from an acquired company. And we are having difficulty to understand if it would be possible to export the HPOO flow and then work something through xml to import in Automic. This customer has no expertise in HPOO. Thank you anyway!
