How to create a new DR plan using DF?
i have the requirement to create a new Shell plan (DR plan) automatically having some generic data in all the mandatory fields . Also want to create new recovery strategy and recovery tasks under it .
What are the possible options to achieve it ?
Any help would be highly appreciated .

You can create a File transporter data feed by creating a file with source fields(which are mandatory in the target Application) and load it up and then map it to the corresponding mandatory fields. Need to think of key fields.
hey Shubham ,
thanks for the response. I have created a File transporter DF. DF is creating the new plan but somehow is not creating the inner child (cross ref application record) inside it. i have also mapped the mandatory field of the child application but still no avail and no warning/error from DF.
Does the source file have all he mandatory data for the child application?
In the field mapping for that cross reference field, do you have the "Add Unkown" option turned on and a key field designated?
BC/DR Plans is a leveled application. To be correctly associated, you would need to create the higher level first.
You would need to create the plan first. Next you would load the strategy data which would need to include the Plan ID on each record. Finally you would load tasks, that data will need to have the corresponding strategy ID on each task.
Hello Stacey ,
Thanks and sorry for the late response (was on vacation).

Yes , So, DR plan is created first and it is working.
You would need to create the plan first. Next you would load the strategy data which would need to include the Plan ID on each record. -
i understand , but Plan is being created by the DF itself. So , how would i get the newly created plan ID?
Finally you would load tasks, that data will need to have the corresponding strategy ID on each task. -
Same question how to get a newly created strategy id?
Following is the DR plan created with the ID - DRP-********- 2123.
Fields like scope, description , application (cross ref field ) etc. all are getting values from the csv file which is being used by this DF. but recovery strategy is empty. Only mandatory field in rec stretegy is strategy description and it is not empty.
CSV file - DF is getting values from this file.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
yes it has all the mandatory data. Add unkown option is also on and so is the key field menitoned.
Still , no avail . i have attached the SS related to this problem for a better understanding.
I don't think there's a way to create a new plan with a DF. You can do it via data load. Create the plan.Updating the strategy spreadsheet with the plan ID and loading it. Next update the tasks spreadsheet with the strategy IDs once they're created and load the tasks. We are experimenting with using Automation Anywhere to copy a master template plan. The IDs from the template plan have to be removed after copy. .
That is a manual process to update every time after DF completes . this is not the way i want to do this . i want the plan to be created automatically so that business can save their time as they don't have to create from scratch every time.
