Error description

  • In previous versions, Export Configuration would operate
    independently of the ObjectManager.properties settings.  In 8.2,
    any settings that are false will prevent the related items from
    being generated from the Export Configuration tool.  The
    resulting output will be empty if everything that was intended
    to be exported is excluded.
    
    
    
    Prerequisites:
    OpenPages 8.2 with default test data
    
    Update ObjectManager.properties
    ? On the application server, go to the OpenPages/bin folder
    ? Open ObjectManager.properties in a text editor
    ? Change all configuration.manager.dump.* settings to false if
    they are set to true.  Ignore settings that are not true/false
    ? Save the file
    
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    ? Log in to OpenPages as OpenPagesAdministrator
    ? Switch to standard UI
    ? Go to Administration->Export Configuration
    ? Choose Export local configuration
    ? Click Submit
    ? Under Choose Type, pick Object Profiles
    ? Check the box next to the Default profile
    ? Click Save migration file
    ? Wait for the export to complete, then download the file
    ? Extract the .jar file, and open the XML in it
    ? Check the contents, and note that the XML portion contains no
    data from the profile
    

Local fix

  • Set all export parameters to true in ObjectManager.properties

Problem conclusion

  • We made a change so when an Environment Migration process is
    kicked off, we change the way we use that particular property
    (in memory without rewriting the file) in order to restore the
    correct Environment Migration behavior.
    
    Customers should download OpenPages with Watson 8.2 Fix Pack 2
    (8.2.0.2). See the following document for details on obtaining
    OpenPages 8.2.0.2:
