How to migrate a domain object from one environment to another environment with the following conditions being satisfied?

1. In the target environment domain object should be same as in source environment.

2. Only the changes/ modifications from source environment are required to be reflected into target environment.

3. In case we have added any system or domain objects in source the same objects need to be migrated to target environment.



SiteMinder versions: R12.5, 12.51 and R12.52



For performing granular export consisting only domain object along with the system and other domain objects present in source domain by using the XPSExport and sub-commands option.

Example: XPSExport <<output xml file name>> -ra -xo <Domain Object XID> -npass


Adds the relevant system objects of the objects appearing after this parameter on the command line.

-xo object_XID

Specifies one or more objects for granular export. You can optionally specify one of the following export types:


Specifies that no passphrase is required. The default policy store objects do not contain encrypted data.

To encrypt sensitive data, use the below option in place of -npass as -pass <<any password>> to make sure that the same password should be used while importing the exported data.

-pass <passphrase>

(Optional) Specifies the passphrase that is required for encryption of sensitive data. This passphrase must be at least eight characters long and must contain at least one digit, one upper case, and one lower case character. The passphrase can contain a space that is enclosed in quotes. If not specified as a command-line option, the export process prompts for a passphrase when sensitive data is being exported.

For importing the xml file, use the below command. After successful import, all the exported objects will be added in the target policy store which are missing in the target host.

Example: XPSImport <<exported xml file>> -npass
