Repository Backup in ODI:
Today we will discuss about the basic things needs to be done to take the repository backup. Normally we can take the backup in two ways that is either from Odi Studio or from the database where the repository lies. Refer this post for taking backup in database level.
Many newbies wont feel confident while taking backup in Odi Studio. Below screenshots will help you to take the backup for future references. In this case I have only taken the minimum things for initial stage but you can take the backup of logs, security settings , technical env etc.
Always export to zip file so that all components will be bundled together. Thats the better way I believe.
Now here you can take the backup of master repository which normally keeps all topology and security components. If you want to take backup of only topology then just export it.
Logical topology is very important as it will keep all logical connection/logical schema across multiple contexts.
Now you can import them in same manner. Its better to import the topology, logical topology and work repository respectively.
Keep in mind that its better to have different id for the target repository. You may get some pop-ups like the id is not declared in the target repository. If you see this then click on yes to declare the id in the new repository. You may get this multiple times. So keep on clicking yes till you dont see the popup.
Similarly you can import topology and logical topology. Thats all. Let me know if you face any issue.
