comparison of objectsVerifying/comparing the processing options between environments and path-codes are one of the primary jobs during an upgrade/rollout etc. It becomes painstakingly difficult to compare them using manual methods. Same is the case with UDC’s and others.

From tools release 9.1.2, we have few new feature implemented – Application Configuration Analyzer

The Application Configuration Analyzer is a set of reports which identify differences for processing options, data dictionary (DD) items, and user defined codes (UDCs) between releases or environments. These reports are:

  • Version Compare Report

  • User Defined Codes Compare Report

  • Data Dictionary Compare Report

Version Compare

The Version Compare report (R983051N) compares the processing options for interactive versions and batch versions between two environments or data sources. The report is a BI Report, and you may have to activate the relevant template/RD to get it running. Environment (1) and Data Source (1) are determined from the current sign on environment. You specify Environment (2) or Data Source (2) in a processing option to indicate the environment or data source to use for comparison.

Before an upgrade, you can compare the versions in the Production and Pristine environments to determine which versions were added, deleted, or changed. After the upgrade, you can use the report to verify that your modifications were carried forward to the new release. You could also use the report as an audit or validation tool.

UDC Compare Report

he User Defined Code Compare report (R960004N) displays differences in the user defined codes (UDCs) in two environments or data sources. Environment (1) and Data Source (1) are determined from the current sign on environment. You specify Environment (2) or Data Source (2) in a processing option to indicate the environment or data source to use for comparison. If data sources are compared, the F0004 User Defined Code Types and F0005 User Defined Codes tables must exist in both data sources for the comparison to succeed.

Data Dictionary Compare Report

The Data Dictionary Compare report (R969200N) compares data dictionary items between two environments or data sources. Environment (1) and Data Source (1) are determined from the current sign on environment. You specify Environment (2) or Data Source (2) in a processing option to indicate the environment or data source to use for comparison.
