However, exporting a Runbook and importing it into another Orchestrator requires some additional attention. So many times a third Orchestrator environment is needed in order to ‘sanitize’ the exported Runbooks before importing them into the production environment. I already blogged about it, to be found here (last bullet).
However, it involves many steps, preparation and some good discipline as well. Otherwise the Orchestrator environment used for sanitizing exported Runbooks isn’t ‘sterile’ anymore, resulting in Runbooks with unexpected behavior.
Therefore it’s good news the Parse Orchestrator Export Tool is finally available for download! What it does? Taken directly from the SCORCH Dev blog: ‘…is a GUI application that looks at exports from your Orchestrator environment and allows you to perform multiple actions on them before re-importing them into the same environment or another Orchestrator Environment…’
Primary functions (also taken from the same blog):
So this tool is a MUST HAVE for anyone involved with Orchestrator. Good to know this tool is available for FREE.
