Tool to Automate Multiple Replace Existing App Operations?

Hello community!

Is there a tool which automates multiple Replace Existing App -operations?

Example;

I have a multinode environment and all nodes have xxx-number of apps.

Lets say IncrementalLoad and FullLoad -apps for yy-number of streams.

Now I have build a new 'default' Apps (Inc+Full) which I import and publish as a template for new streams. But I also have to replace all the existing apps I have.

This is very time consuming and error prone to clickety-click through the process;

Publish, Select correct stream from the dropdown menu, tick Replace existing app, Select App to replace from the dropdown menu and click three times OK for confirmations.

I mean this is simple task to perform once or ten times. But when I have literally hundreds of these to go through I was wondering if there is a tool or way I haven't discovered yet which allows me to do this automatically for All apps I want.

I hope the question was clear enough.

Br,

Sami Saarinen

Re: Tool to Automate Multiple Replace Existing App Operations?

I have the same problem and wonder if there is any way to automate "replace existing app" when the app is published.

The answer on this question only publish the app on the stream but doesn't replace existing app.

It is important that the app always have the same app id.

Thanks
