Dear  Members,

I am new to ARIS and facing following challanges:

- would like to copy a complete group structure containing models and objects

-remove all models and objects from the copied group structure

-rename all copied group names, where I would need to replace in the names "SOP" to "GOP"


So in the end I would like only the Group structure, without content, renamed.

Any tips how to do it quick and clean?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Adam,

This is a workaround and not official statement.

I think that you can create a new database then copy the whole structure that you want and do a merge for this new database.

On this new database you can run the script 'export attribute values for translation' from group and if you're using English for your database then choose English for target and source option ( same language ).

On the XLS as result of this report you can see the column 'source language' then for each item and change the name from SOP > GOP and save the XLS.

And now you can import the XLS on this new database using the script 'import translated attributes' from database and upload the XLS that you did before and choose English to import and as result you can see new name GOP.

Then you can do a new merge to main database.

Do tests before to change the production database, create a copy of production database before to start.
