Moving PeopleSoft Config between Environments April 12, 2007

During PeopleSoft implementations it’s a fairly common task to need to move Configuration (i.e. setup data) between environments. Larger implementations may even have a separate Config environment which serves as the master for config data, and from where you’d need to migrate out config into other environments on a regular basis.

There are a number of tools you could use to achieve this, be it data mover, raw SQL or even an SQR or App Engine. All of these would need to be custom written. An alternative solution is to use the Manage Configuration Set functionality. It’s a delivered component (at least on more recent versions of the Application) that lets you choose the modules you wish to export config for, and it builds the DMS files (Data Mover Scripts) for you.
