ODI 11G - Problem to Export Import Interface between DEV and TEST Env

Hi all,

I am trying to Export an Folder who is containing a Interface. This interface is using a Models.

To do my export, i followed the steps below :

- Export and Import the Model (Duplication) : Everything is working fine and i am able to visualize the data.

- Export and Import the Folder with the Interface (Duplication) : Import done without error but when i am opening the folder, my interface is in yellow. I have the error message saying Object referenced in this interface are missing.

The missing objetc is my source table but i already tested and the source is in the models already.

Please is one of you faced to that problem  ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

    Hi Ben,

    If you have ODI or later, always use Smart Export/Import to transfer ODI objects between environments.

    Smart Export/Import of an object automatically takes care of the references.

    Then drag and drop from Designer your objects.

    If you use Duplicate mode ODI will create new object id, which will cause the issue.

    Consider in dev environment you have a table with ID -1, and you tried to import model with duplciation mode in other environment. In this case there is no guarantee that EMP table will have same ID-1 in prod which results in error you are facing.

    Delete the objects and try using INSERT_UPDATE mode.

    Hope this helps.
