Re: What is Change Promotion utility and what are new things in Windchill 11 wrt Change Promotion Utility ?

This utility in Windchill 11.0 F000 “Business Administrative Change Promotion Utility” provides a way to move administrative changes made in a pre-production PTC Windchill installation to a production PTC Windchill.

For example, a policy access control rule can be created in a test system to ensure that the policy rule functions as intended. After testing is complete, the change can be moved to the production PTC Windchill system using the business administrative change promotion command-line utility.

If user has made some modification in access control rule on source server and would like to propagate the same changes on Production Server. In this case the user don’t have to redo the same modification manually on production Server, they can use the “Business Administrative Change Promotion Utility”.

The Business Administrative Change Promotion is a command line utility which has the –export and –import parameter which is use to export the policy rule from Source system and import it Target system.

We can refer to these links of Windchill Help Center to get the brief details about how this utility work:
