Change Management: Process Export, Import and Merge
In Certify 10.0.3 Worksoft takes the concept of transferable automation to the next level by making it easier to maintain and share your process libraries between users, projects and databases.
Maybe you’ve paid a vendor to create automation for you or you just want to transfer an automated process from pre-prod to production. Now you can quickly and easily package up and move all the required assets.
Separate Databases for Production Results and Development – Easily manage moving processes between environments for versioning and promotion. Change management is easy to adopt allowing large scale deployments to share processes across databases geographically and across development and production environments.
Import and Export of Assets between Projects – Quickly and easily package up a process with all of its related dependencies, sub-process, record sets, record filters, layouts and variables into a zip file that can be exported out of a Certify database/environment into a new one. Upon import, all of the relative folder structure, hierarchy, layouts and data is retained and you’re ready to edit and run.
Process Compare and Merge – In Certify 10.0.1 we introduced process compare which lets you see two processes highlighting the differences between steps, data, and attributes. The ability to manually review processes and then merge is new in Certify 10.0.3 and is different from prior cut, paste, and copy functionality. Upon import Certify checks to see if there are any processes that have the same name, or folders with the same name. If there are no conflicts, Certify will then complete the merge itself. If there is a conflict, meaning there were two processes with the same name, Certify will then ask the user to make a decision on that conflict. The user can choose to overwrite, or perform an individual merge by deciding which one needs to be merged and which remains as-is.
