MicroStrategy Object Manager

MicroStrategy Object Manager can help you manage objects as they progress through your project’s life cycle. Using Object Manager, you can copy objects within a project or across projects. Object Manager can copy application, schema, and configuration objects.

In the MicroStrategy system, every object has an ID (or GUID) and a version.

When you copy objects across projects with Object Manager, if an object with the same ID as the source object exists anywhere in the destination project, a conflict occurs. Object Manager helps you to resolve the conflict. For example, you can copy over the existing object, use the newer object, and so on. For steps to copy objects and resolve conflicts, as well as background information to understand how objects are copied, see the Managing Your Projects chapter of the System Administration Guide.
