Problem:

Does the Import Export Manager maintain item links when moving a StarTeam project?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: IEM
  • Platform/OS Version: N/A


Links to items within the same StarTeam project will be maintained when a project is moved. However, links to items in other StarTeam projects will not be maintained after a project is moved.

This is as designed, the Import Export Manager allows you to copy data from a project on one StarTeam Server to another StarTeam Server that already has projects in it. If you need to move an entire server configuration then Borland recommends that it is best to take a full database backup and restore it on the target system.

If you are interested in archiving older projects it is the Borland recommendation that you backup the entire server and then restore it onto an a server with no projects. After this the projects to be archived can be deleted from the production server, and the projects that are not being archived can be deleted from the archive server. This is the only way to assure that the full history for the projects are archived.
