Exporting and Importing PS Security


It is actually pretty easy to export and import the security from PeopleSoft. There are datamover scripts that are given to. They are located in the PS_HOME PeopleSoft installation directory.

You do have to realize that this export script simply exports all of the security. You can’t really pick and choose. But it is great for backups and even for server refreshes.

Exporting – Step 1

To export security, simply login to DataMover.

Exporting – Step 4

You have to set the export location for both the .DAT file and the log file.

Exporting – Step 5

Then you simply hit the Run Script button or F5.



To import, the steps are exactly the same, except you open the securityimport.dms file and point it to the path of your export file.
