Hi @Hassan Shareef ,

This functionality is still missing in IFS Cloud. It’s not in 21R2 either. 

As far as I know, this is currently possible only through .INS files that should be run directly in the database. When you choose an existing template and export it, the system creates .INS files which can then be run using PL/SQL Developer. But note that this requires customer’s permission if it’s not an internal environment. 

As this is a basic data setup, I believe there should be a mechanism to import the company template from the application itself and I’m not sure why RnD had removed it in the first place. It’s better to open a case and ask about this from RnD if you haven’t already.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Dinushi

It has been decided implementing Import Company Template in IFS Cloud will not be done.

In IFS Cloud a normal user is not allowed (due to permissions) to install any files into the environment. This must be managed by certified persons like administrators, and they can do this without any Assistant from the application. So, the Import Company Templates assistant is no longer available in IFS Cloud.

Below are suggested actions, that can be used to import company template.

1.           Deploy .ins files directly to the DB

2.           Apply as a delivery through Customer Solution repository in Build place

@tibsltd 

Could you please expand on this. 

Since customer is managed by Cloud Ops -- does Cloud Ops have to create a delivery for the customer?

@ Tony J,

Adding to the same concern raised by Nancy; Could you please explain on how the above suggested solutions should be performed?

  • Is it IFS cloud who should do it?
  • Or else should it (delivery) be handled through a Jira case?

Best Regards,

Rasangi
