Initially the current C&DS environment is:
The C&DS environment evolves into:
/jobs/mining-B (This job was renamed from mining-A to mining-B)
Now when the job /jobs/mining-B is promoted to PROD, the customer is not seeing mining-B created within the /jobs folder.
Objects are referenced through their URI not the name.
Properties of PROD mining-A job show it was updated when the promote was performed. Objects are referenced through their URI and this is why PROD mining-A continued to be updated. Renaming the PROD job mining-A to mining-B resolved the issue. The promote is performed and mining-B is updated.
Be extremely sensitive to renaming objects that are involved in export/import operations.
