Even Though ODI is Configured with Git / SVN VCS, Options to Apply Deployment Archive Are Not Disabled (Doc ID 2805169.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 07, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator on Marketplace - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), even though the documentation mentions that the option to initialize Deployment Archive should be disabled when a Repository is configured with Version Control System (VCS), this option is not only available, but it also works.

According to documentation "Initialize Deployment Archive" and "Patch Deployment Archive" options should be disabled:

"You can initialize an ODI repository that is not connected to VCS with the contents of an initial deployment archive. If VCS connectivity is configured then it is assumed to be a development repository and thus the options to apply deployment archive are disabled."

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Configure ODI Repository with Git
    => the repository is empty
  2. Add all non-versioned objects
    => this will add topology objects, and work repository global templates, as there are no other work repository objects
  3. Initialize a Deployment Archive
    Team -> Deployment Archives -> Initialize Deployment Archive...
    => this works
