How to synchronize dev and production environment without copying database?

What is the best practice for developpers to have an up-to-date environment with productions’s tags,services,dialogs, policies etc … without to copy the whole big database?

Actually we synchronize automation code with git:

  • we export devel code from CF/MIQ
  • we integrate it in git
  • we import code from git in production.

We synchronize dialogs with export/import MIQ functions

We have to synchronize tags, catalog items , services: how to do it?

Hello, here you may find useful rake tasks that extend the import/export capabilities to pretty much all relevant objects:

Hope this helps.

ok thanks
