IFS Update Analyzer is a tool to identify areas where customizations and configurations may have to be modified when taking Feature Releases in IFS Cloud.
The Configuration Extractor page is used to extract the configurations from an installation to be analyzed by the Update Analyzer to find potential issues that needs to be handled when taking a new update.
Note: It is not expected to run Configuration Analysis when taking Service Updates in IFS Cloud.
Configuration Extractor requires Rowkey to be enabled on the related entities which store information on the configuration. If this is missing, errors will be thrown. See Supported Configurations for the entity names.
The configurations can be extracted using the Configuration Extractor page which is located under IFS/Solution Manager>Configurations>Application Configuration Packages>Configuration extractor

Click Next to extract the configurations. The total duration of the extraction depends on the number of configurations, the greater the number the longer the extraction would take. A summary of the results of the extraction can be viewed in the next step.
Figure 2 - Download extractions
Click Download to download the configurations in ZIP format. The downloaded ZIP will include all the configurations in the application and a log file which contains extracted information for each Configuration. The log file can be used to identify errors if there are any and the extracted files can be used in the Update Analyzer tool.
If there is an error reported, it is most probably caused by the configuration been incorrectly configured. Check the status of the configuration, if it is working properly and if it should be part of the analyze.
The following configurations are currently supported. The file naming convention can be used to find the configuration which the file is related to. Configuration Storage states the entity which stores the configuration information. These entities must have Rowkey enabled on them for Extract operation to work.
