You can use the batch import tool to import a package
that was created by the BI Manager export wizard in SAS 9.1.3, subject
to the following special considerations:
In SAS 9.1.3, only the following
types of objects can be exported: data explorations, documents, deployed
jobs, external files, folders, generated transformations, information
maps, jobs, job flows, libraries, mining results, notes, reports,
stored processes, and tables. In SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.3, a larger number
of object types can be imported and exported.
For the servers, paths, and other
resources that are associated with the imported objects, the batch
tool will apply the same values that were used in the SAS 9.1.3 environment.
After the import is completed, you must use SAS Management Console
(or other SAS applications, as needed) to modify the imported objects'
properties so that their associated servers, paths, and other values
are correct for the target environment.
the batch import tool to import SAS 9.1.3 packages can result in a
significant number of broken metadata associations, such as tables
with no associated library, jobs with missing tables, transformations
within jobs with missing mappings, and expressions within mappings
with missing columns.
As a best practice,
you should use the batch import tool to import a SAS 9.1.3 package
only if the resources associated with the imported objects have the
same values in the two environments. Otherwise, it is strongly recommended
that you use the Import SAS Package
in SAS Management Console, SAS Data Integration Studio, or SAS OLAP
