By: Spoton Systems  09-12-2011

Whether you are changing security models or moving from development to test to production, this invaluable tool automates the migration of each user's identity to the new namespace saving your IT staff time and the potential of costly mistakes.

SpotOn Namespace Migration seamlessly migrates user identities from one Cognos Namespace to another. Whether you are changing security models (for example, migrating from Cognos Series 7 to IBM Cognos business intelligence), or moving from development to test to production, SpotOn Namespace Migration safely and easily migrates each user's identity to the new namespace.

SpotOn Namespace Migration performs the following tasks:

  • Audit all objects
  • Create and display a policy matrix
  • Display the permissions and policies for each user on each object
  • Display the members of each Cognos group and role
  • Display all objects within a user's My Folders
  • Locate and match users in the target namespace
  • Migrate all My Folders content
  • Migrate all Preferences (locale, output format, rows per page, etc..)
  • Migrate all Portal Pages
  • Migrate all Schedules
  • Migrate all Membership
  • Migrate all Policies & Permissions
  • Migrate all Capabilities

For customers who require replication and synchronization of their namespaces in new or graduated test environments, SpotOn Namespace Migration programmatically migrates all or selected parts of the namespace from one environment to another. Unlike performing the task manually which is very time and resource intensive, SpotOn Namespace Migration provides a fast and easy way to migrate your namespaces to new environments.
