Sites that are converting from E/Nat to
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment should perform these steps for a successful conversion.
To convert your E/Nat installation to
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment, perform the following steps:
  1. Install the
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment software according to the installation instructions provided in the
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment Implementation Guide.
  2. To maintain Element Signout Status, execute the
    CA Endevor
    Element Signed Out Profile - by System (Report number 8) for all inventory locations from which E/Nat elements will be added as
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment Elements. Save the output.
    You will use this report later to set the signout to status on the elements you add to
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment.
  3. Add Elements for each Environment, Stage and E/Nat Type from your E/Nat Natural database directly to
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment, using the
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment Batch (or Foreground) Add facility.
    The target location of the Add Action should be the Environment and Stage that corresponds to the location associated with the Natural database. If the target location is Stage 2 of the Environment and that stage is not defined as an Entry Stage, then, after the Add Action, move the Elements to Stage 2.
    If you wish to ADD the Elements directly back to Stage 2 of the Environment, you can temporarily update the ENTRYSTG parameter specification in the C1DEFLTS Environment Definition for the Target Environment in Stage 2.
    If you do not want to overlay the Natural objects, set the “Generate (Catalog) Element” option to “N” on the Add/Update Natural Programming Objects screen before submitting the ADD request.
  4. Using the Element Signed Out Profile - by System report, create and execute
    CA Endevor
    SIGNIN actions (using the SIGNOUT TO Option clause) to properly set the Signout Status of the
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment inventory.
    This sets the Signout to Status for each Element to match the status associated with each Element prior to adding it to
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment.
  5. Define an ESI (External Security Interface) rule to prohibit actions that can modify E/Nat Elements.
    This prevents changes to the E/Nat Inventory and retains the change history associated with the Elements prior to moving them to
    CA Endevor
    Integration for the Natural Environment.
If you prefer to transfer the E/Nat to
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment in Logical Units, you can use the E/Nat Retrieve Action to extract the Element Source, on a
CA Endevor
system/subsystem basis, from the E/Nat Inventory to a temporary repository. Use the
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment ADD action to populate the new
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment inventory area from the temporary repository. Delete the Elements from the temporary repository after they have been added to the
CA Endevor
Integration for the Natural Environment inventory area.
