Transfer of model objects between IBM Cognos TM1 environments

Use the Transfer Out command to copy the model elements by selecting objects from a source IBM® Cognos® TM1® environment and copying them to a target IBM Cognos TM1 environment. You can control the type and number of model objects that are transferred to the target environment.

The transfer specification includes the selected objects and those objects that are required by them.

If you use a development environment to modify and test an application, you can transfer the changes that you made to a target directory. Content in the target directory is ready to be transferred to a production environment when the changes are complete.

A selective transfer provides the following benefits:
  • The server is not interrupted.
  • You can select only the objects that you know were changed. Understanding the business logic for the application reduces any errors that might be generated during the transfer process.
