We are doing lots of configuration and testing in an PLM implementation project where we have 4 environments
Our problem is that we dont really have a clear overview over what configuration is in which environment at any given time. We also have challenges if we want to do "partial transfers" of configuration (only transfer 50% of config done in DEV)
We are using standard BMIDE clients for each environment and transferring bmide config by copying content of default.xml and default_en_us.xml between the servers.
We are using plmxml and tc utilitie for exporting config files and importing to the next environment (wf, stylesheets, uiconfig, access manager, queries, preferences etc).
We are looking to streamline the configuration transfer and overview between the environments
We really see the need to use github or similar SCM to know what configuration is in each environment. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any tips?
Great question! I've noticed that common SCM capabilities to identify and merge changes don't work well with XML since they are plain-text based and the natural reordering within XML files makes their change management capabilities unusable.

Any update to share with your search in managing BMIDE changes through the DTAP environments?
Who has already setup a manageable change enviroment?
As I am a configurator and not a programmer I have difficulties in selecting the correct tools :-)
