Last updated on JULY 31, 2018

Applies to:

Hyperion Essbase - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Export Essbase Server Global Substitution Variables from one Essbase server and import on another Essbase server, the global substitution variables are not updated on the target system.

Steps done:

1. On both servers, create the same substitution variable but with different values. Set at global level, (all apps) (all dbs). For example:

Source Server:
CurDay = Friday
CurYr = FY2525

Target Server:
CurDay = Thursday
CurYr = FY2017

2. Using LCM on the source server, export just the substitution variables.

3. Copy the exported directory structure to the Target server.

4. Import the Substitution Variables. Make sure the Migration Options are set to 'Overwrite' for Essbase Application - Overwrite Artifacts. There is no option for the Essbase Server, only for Essbase Applications.

5. In EAS Console, connect to the target Essbase Server. Right-click on the Essbase server and Edit -> Variables. Note the substitution variables for CurDay and CurYr have not been updated with the source variables.
