Import Control Files

Import Control Files

An import control file is an XML file that you use with infacmd commands. The control file filters the objects that infacmd imports from an export file into a domain or Model repository.
You can use an import control file with the following commands:
infacmd isp ImportDomainObjects
Imports native users, native groups, roles, connections, and cluster configurations from an export file into a domain. When you specify an import control file for the command, you can complete the following tasks:
  • Filter the objects that you want to import. For example, use the control file to import a specific object type.
  • Configure conflict resolution strategies for specific object types or objects.
infacmd oie ImportObjects
Imports Model repository objects from an export file into a Model repository. When you specify an import control file for the command, you can complete the following tasks:
  • Filter the objects that you want to import. For example, use the control file to import a specific object type.
  • Configure conflict resolution strategies for specific object types or objects.
  • Map connections in the source repository to connections in the target repository.
Dependent Model repository objects may exist in different folders or projects. You must include all dependent objects using folderMap elements in the import control file. Otherwise, the import might fail with an error message because a dependent object does not exist in the target repository.
You can define a conflict resolution strategy through the command line or control file when you import the objects. The control file takes precedence if you define conflict resolution in the command line and control file. The import fails if there is a conflict and you did not define a conflict resolution strategy.
If you define the rename conflict resolution strategy, you can specify a name in the control file for a specific object. Or, infacmd can generate a name by appending a sequential number to the end of the name.
An import control file uses different parameters based on whether you configure the file to import domain objects or Model repository objects.
