Data Sent to the Destination Environment

When deploying categories, the following data is sent to the destination environment:

  • categories

  • permissions
  • parent categories

Subcategories need to be manually copied to the destination environment. In addition, if manually created permission groups consist of users that exist in the destination environment, new users will not be created in the destination environment.
