Bulk Importing Metadata Services (MDS) Files With WLST or EM Leaves Out Configuration Files (Doc ID 1437903.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle SOA Suite - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

For different use cases you might be facing the situation where you want to bulk import Metadata Service (MDS) files into an environment. This may be to update many files at once or to restore the MDS from another db.

Both the Weblogic Scripting Tool (WLST) and Enterprise Manager (EM) present means to do that.
In WLST you use the importMetadata function where you declare parameter docs='/**' to tell you want all files.
In EM you use the MDS import tool and select a zip file or expanded directory.

In both cases the files will be imported except for the following configuration files:

/soa/configuration/default/adapter-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/b2b-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/bpel-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/bpmn-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/businessrules-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/cep-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/edn-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/mediator-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/soa-infra-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/workflow-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/workflow-identity-config.xml
/soa/configuration/default/workflow-notification-config.xml
/soa/configuration/folders.xml
/soa/configuration/logmetadata.xml
