DataStage® Release: 9x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
When creating a package from multiple source projects, is it possible to deploy the jobs in the package to the same named projects in the target environment?

An initial look at the supporting documentation implies you have to deploy the package into one target project. This would then require splitting the jobs out of this project into the projects that reflect the source environment.

I haven't tried this, but I believe you would need to use a command line migration instead of the GUI for this. I think it would work that way, but I am not 100% sure.

Just as an FYI... you posted this same question on Friday, which I moved to the General forum. I will be moving this one as well - since it has been replied to - and will be removing the first one. Again, just an FYI.

Carry on.

DSTOOLS is executed 'under the covers' by server manager. Are you implying that there is an option in the DSTOOLS CLI that allows the jobs to be deployed into the projects that reflect the source project structure?

Pete, maybe I'm confused, but I ask respectfully if with exasperation why the heck you'd want to put objects from more than one project in the same package?

The assumption here is that you are using the isx format for your exports. The dsx format is very clear in the first headers, that the objects contained in the file are for one specific project. I don't know that about isx, but it would surprise me that the isx is not similarly constructed.

We are trying to move to a simpler release based approach for our deployments; one package for the whole release.

Previously we used the DS import/export utilities, but have moved to using server manager (DSTOOLS).

The complication is that for a given release, a number of DS projects may have been updated with new/amended jobs. Our DS project structure reflects logical components of our target solution; a release may change number of logical components; therefore, update a number of DS projects.

We adhere to the same project structure throughout our route to live environments.
