Copy profiles between databases
We have both a Production and Test database. All of our imports are developed and tested in the Test database before being recreated in Production. Right now this is a very manual process. It would be great if there were a way to copy profiles and dictionaries (or export/import) from one database to another.
Hi Martin, You can already export and import profiles, though the import option is intentionally a little more difficult to find (we don’t want just anybody using that feature as they need to understand that one database may not have the same attributes (for instance) as another database). To export a profile, right-click on it in the list. To import, hold down the ctrl-key and right click on any profile in the list (it does not matter which profile, it will import a new one).
IOM doesn’t export dictionaries, but you can import them from excel (via your clipboard), so I would recommend maintaining your dictionary entries in an Excel doc, then just importing the final version when you’re ready to go to production.
