    LCM - form migration

    AcidB
      Hello,

      We're migrating to 11.1.2.2 and facing some difficulties migrating forms trough LCM.

      First time import of a forms folder in the application went fine.
      The second time, we added more .xml form files in the File System to the same folder (and listing file). HSS 'sees' those files, we execute the migration to the planning application which goes without error, but there is no change in the application.

      Then I've deleted the forms and the folder in the application (deleting the folder is a story of its own) and remigrated the forms. The result is - the folder is recreated and the forms imported - but only the ones initially imported.

      Has anyone had similar issues, are we missing something or is it another planning 'issue'?

      Thanks!

          So you are trying to hack the LCM :)

          It works fine on 11.1.2.2 (not sure what is your version)

          I took a copy of Tax Rate.xml file and created a new one Tax Rates New.xml (changed the xml to reflect the new form name)
          <form xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" name="Tax Rate New" dir="Forms/Workforce" enableOffline="false" planType="WF" hide="false" enableCubeView="false" readOnly="false" >
          Added that one in the listing.xml file
          <resource name="Tax Rates" id="Tax Rates" type="Data Form" size="-1" path="/Plan Type/Wrkforce/Data Forms/Workforce" pathAlias="/Plan Type/Wrkforce/Data Forms/Workforce" modifiedBy="admin" lastUpdated="1367258138000" description="" />
          <resource name="Tax Rates New" id="Tax Rates New" type="Data Form" size="-1" path="/Plan Type/Wrkforce/Data Forms/Workforce" pathAlias="/Plan Type/Wrkforce/Data Forms/Workforce" modifiedBy="admin" lastUpdated="1367258138000" description="" />
          Import back to Planning and it works. What are those xml file that dropped into the file directory? Are they created on same version? Is there a form with the same name?

          Regards

            Thanks for your response.
            I forgot to update form name tags in every new form .xls file. -.-

            Moral of the story = file name, listing file, name and folder tag must be synched for each form.

            Cheers,
