By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Beside the obsolete dmbasic, the autistic dmawk, the verbose java with the DfCs, the limited iapi (for API) and idql (for DQL) command-line tools, Documentum does not offer any scripting language for the administrator and the out-of-the-box experience is quite frustrating in this respect. It has been so even before the java trend so it is not a maneuver to force the use of the DfCs or to rely on it for administrative tasks. It…

You are attending the second episode of the MigrationUtil series, today we will change the Docbase Name. If you missed the first one, you can find it here.

My goal is to do both changes on the same docbase because that’s what I will need in the future.
