Guided Configuration following an upgrade from LiveCompare 4.8 or earlier

The Commit Configuration process available from the Guided Configuration screen’s Pipelines tab prepares each of your Pipelines so that you are ready to run the Smart Impact app and the LiveCompare Usage Report workflow. The Commit Configuration process performs the following tasks:

  • Downloads IMG, performance history and DUA data for RFC Destinations used in Pipelines.

  • Schedules the collection of performance history and DUA data for RFC Destinations used in Pipelines.

  • Schedules workflows that generate Object Links Cache and Test Repository Cache databases.

  • Schedules the Developer Impact Analysis, Configurator Impact Analysis and Security Impact Analysis workflows.

  • Schedules the LiveCompare Usage Report workflow.

If you have upgraded to LiveCompare 2023.3 patch 4 from LiveCompare 4.8 or earlier and you use LiveCompare for impact analysis, you may have set up some of these tasks manually in your earlier release of LiveCompare. Committing a configuration without removing your manual tasks may result in a duplication of configuration steps, which could lead to slower performance or inaccurate impact analysis results.

If you have upgraded to LiveCompare 2023.3 patch 4 from release 4.8 or earlier, we recommend that you do the following before running the Commit Configuration process. The Guided Configuration Migration Assistant workflow in the Tools templates folder can help you with some of these steps.
