Custom configuration files are overwritten, after installing a CP or CUP

Custom configuration files are overwritten, after installing a CP or CUP

Custom configuration files (e..g. UriEndpointConfiguration.xml, ucs_url_list.conf etc.)  are overwritten, after installing a Content Pack (CP) or Cumulative Update Package (CUP). This behavior generates errors and additional overhead.  

Maybe its possible to introduce a switch during the CUP installation, whether custom configuration files should be overwritten or not.

Since it is not possible to use such a switch for CP installations, it would be good to install only sample files on the CP if the synthax had changed.

Additionally, maybe give customers the ability to export any content that will be overwritten, and then a mechanism to reapply the customized content.  Lightweight package management operation before and after.

Are you familiar with the merging activities on content pack, as described here?

We are currently using 10.33, where the functionality isn't available.  We will change out version in the next year and it seems that the possibilities in 2018.11 correspond to our ideas.
Thanks Achim

Actually, the Compare and Merge capability was completed in the 10.32 release.  You should be good for your upgrade from 10.33 to any of the releases in 2018+

Status changed to: Already Offered

THis capability was provided as part of the 10.32 release.  Details can be found at https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Universal_CMDB:2018.11/admin/CP_upgrade_compare_merge.  While this link is for the most current release, the content is relevent from CMS 10.32 and later.

Hello,

I found the functionality in our UCMDB, so we can close this idea now.
