import/export infrastructure settings

Is there a standard way or best practice to export the infrastructure settings from on environment and to import them to another? Same question applies to the global settings.

From my point of view it would be better to manage the global settings via settings.override.properties to better manage differences between environments.

Hello Kevin,


The infrastructure settings are a collection of URM resources which are customer visible in the UI to be easily edited. They follow the general rule that most of the URM resources can't be imported/exported to move them to another environment. Most of the are instance specific so probably they aren't correct or proper for another environment. Some of them are dynamic like the Browser URL.

The first URM resources to break the above rule are the LDAP settings which starting with Browser 4.04 (if I remember correctly) can be exported and imported. It's logical for the LDAP settings as they can be static and they can be used on multiple environments.


Defining some URM values in settings-override.properties is somehow an exception. What we define there is the forced default value for some URM settings and they can change during the normal UCMDB operations.
