eek Site template missing data when going from Dev to Prod RRS feed

  • Question

  • so I customized the MS Absence Request db, migrated some data, included some list content and want to move it to production.

    however all of the name fields are blank and it doesn't appear that the securty/item permissions has migrated either.

    Is there a better way to get this to come over? What's going on?

  • How you are moving the site template from Dev to Prod?

    I presume that that you are using the site template with data option. This option has some limitation. It will allow you to move only limited data (50 MB -not sure). If you wants to move the data from Dev to Prod use export and import option. Once you imported then you have to inherit the permission from you parent site.

    Pls try and let us know.

  • And this will keep the item permissions as well, correct?

    use this:

    then this:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc261866(office.12).aspx

     

    that's all I need?

  • ok. I have given up and am resigned to re-entering the data.

    I can't compile the workflows in production.

    I added custom workflows with custom activities (spdactivities, http://spdactivities.codeplex.com/)

    works beautifully in dev. Want to move to production.

    save site as a template (with content so I can modify the workflows as needed)

    get no errors for 'check workflow' but get this when I click Finish:

     

    “(0, 10) The type or namespace name 'DP' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?))”


    My first instinct is to redeploy sdpactivities in production.

    Anything else I should be looking at?
