Status Not under consideration

Import a DataStage job into a different environment on a different server (Git integration)

Currently, the script dfdGitCli.sh doesn't allow a job to be imported into a slightly different project name on a different server, e.g. from project_dev on erads11.ci.datastage.com to project_tst on erads12.ci.datastage.com. Given that our work flow is dev -> test -> prod and each project has an environment specified as part of the project name to prevent human error, the limit hinders us from adopting DataStage Flow Designer's Git integration functionalities.

We'd like the limit to be lifted through an enhancement so that we can utilize the Git integration for a CICD process moving forward. We believe that the enhancement would benefit overall DataStage licensees who are considering DataStage Flow Designer for Git integration.

    Thanks for your response. As far as MettleCl is provided by a company, "Data Migrators", not IBM. Did you mean to say that IBM recommends folks to use MettleCl for Git integration and CI/CD workflow?

    Thank you for your idea. This is currently not under consideration as we would recommend leveraging MettleCI provided now by IBM for advanced Git integration and CI/CD workflow.
