CA IM Management Console provide capability to export an existing IM environment.


Sometimes the export process fails without providing any valuable information.

In order to investigate the issue, it is required to be able to access the IM log (on JBoss, server.log).

Unfortunately, most of the time this is not possible because access to the remote server is not allowed (i.e production).


The idea is to improve export process to provide more descriptive information through CA IM Management Console.

We are currently working on providing an advanced IM export which will allow you to select the objects you want to export.

Please refer to this idea:

Hi Chen,


Yes. Some environments contains a lot of tasks/PXs/etc. and takes a lot of time to dump them out.

We have one environment that is not exportable.


The idea is to redesign the export process to select which components needs to be exported.

Often necessary to move PX from Staging to Production.

This happened to me several times before and was always due to time out, the reason for time out in my cases was because the environment XML was over 20MB. after a couple of tries and eventually succeeded - not best solution, very frustrating but eventually works. Is that what you see as well?

I see that the Idea is now "under review".


Some customer asked me if we can provide at minimum xml policy xpress export to help moving PX towards environments. Any ETA ?

To further improve the export process, the xml elements should be sorted. This will enable text file comparison between 2 environment files.
