  3. 3. Problematic A classic data import/export use case + Transfer data between multiple environnements •Need for « Selective » export or import, not all data… Integration Incremental import • don’t push DB dump !

  6. 6. Frontline feedback Example : roles permissions definitions + Default permissions for roles •A critical security configuration 2 1 3 + How-to ? •Without any tool (very painful) : you need to write specific configuration procedure documentation (potentially huge) You need to « replay » procedure manually (UI) for each environement (re-)initi Unsafe (human error) Build a tool to do the work (go back at home earlier !) Fast to replay Repeatable (error-prone)Liferay Europe Symposium – Wiesbaden, Germany | 16-17 october 2012 6
  7. 7. Frontline feedback Best practices to write import/export tools + Don’t work directly with database (SQL extract & load) •Possible application-level data integrity violations + Only use portal services to read and write data •Choose your weapon Plain-old plugin, written in Java Admin script, written in Groovy, Ruby, etc. + Be carreful about IDs •An entity ID is not the same in source environment and target environment Do not rely on entity ID Relations between entities must not be stored with IDsLiferay Europe Symposium – Wiesbaden, Germany | 16-17 october 2012 7
