1869562 - LCM is promoting unnecessary server groups along with reports


  • Life cycle manager (LCM or promotion management) is not calculating dependencies correctly for server groups at times
  • While promoting reports, LCM adds non-dependent server groups to promotion jobs
  • These server groups are added in the last "promote" step before submitting the job, with no possibility to deselect the unneeded server groups.
  • Dependency calculation for standard server groups works fine but fails in complex scenarios involving nested server groups
  • For Example: when you have multiple Parent server groups using the same child server groups, and
    when a report has only 1st  parent server group as dependency,
    then LCM seems to bring all the unrelated parent groups
  • This issue can be seen on sample reports as well when used with same server groups structure
