Looking for a best practice means to preserve profile options and/or responsibilities in a clone target post clone.
Basic process today:
1. Clone Prod on top of target
2. Manually change prod responsibilities and profile options not handled in adclone
1. Preserve non-prod options (responsibilities - likely less controlled than prod, profile options - likely less controlled than prod, or perhaps email alerts going to a different location, templates showing "TEST ONLY - NOT PRODUCTION")
2. Clone Prod on top of target
3. Restore #1
In the past I've done export/import (truncate option sometimes) of specific tables or done a script to create a restore script, then execute that script following clone.
Curious as to thoughts of best practice to avoid all manual post clone steps regarding front-end changes that are unique to the Dev, UAT, etc. environments.
Thanks for the help.
