Metadata Manager

This section describes changes to Metadata Manager in version 9.6.1.
Effective in version 9.6.1, there are behavior changes related to resource configuration import and export.
Password Import and Export
Effective in version 9.6.1, when you export a resource configuration through Metadata Manager or mmcmd, you can include or exclude the encrypted resource password in the resource configuration file. If you exclude the password, and the resource uses a password, you must enter it when you import the resource configuration.
Previously, Metadata Manager always included the encrypted resource password in the resource configuration file.
Privilege Changes
Effective in version 9.6.1, you can export a resource configuration if you have the View Resource privilege. You can import a resource configuration if you have the Load Resource privilege.
Previously, to export or import a resource configuration, you needed the Load Resource privilege.
