      Please suggest what to use to move content from older version to newer version.
      This is what we got so far; we would like other people's perspective on what tool to use to move data content from older version to newer version of Business objects.

       

      Here are some Pros and cons what we got so far:

       

      Tool

      Pros

      Cons

      Notes

      Upgrade Management Tool

      Can move all content within a single process

      Process cannot be scheduled

       

      Upgrade Management Tool

      Reports Instances are moved

      Process takes longer because of number of instances

      SNC may want to prune the number of instances and institute a retention policy.

      Upgrade Management Tool

      Live to live migration is possible

      Adjustment to version check is required.

       

      Upgrade Management Tool

      Security can be moved

      Security may not work 100%

      This has been a known issue. See community comments as reference.

      Connections can be moved

      Connections don’t work

      Likely this is a registry issue. Requires more testing. If it is a registry issue, the connection registry will have to be completed before the migration

      Promotion Management

      Can move content

      Must be done in batches

      Report Instances cannot be moved
