Isetup to Transfer Setup from One instance to another


This document provides a complete, up-to-date description of Oracle iSetup Minipack 11i.AZ.H (5140723). The main focus of iSetup is to help migrate functional setups from one E-Business Suite instance to another. During migration, setups can be extracted selectively using filters on setup attributes. Extracted setup data can be optionally transformed before loading into target instance.
Both the source and target should be in the same iSetup patch level .

Oracle iSetup Minipack 11i.AZ.H can be applied only to an existing Oracle Applications Release 11.5.10 system
