Note: Click the Deselect All button to clear your selection of all the projects and its artifacts.

The selected BPM project and its artifacts are exported and saved in a ZIP file in the selected directory.
You can then use the Import BPM Applications wizard to import the ZIP file to copy the exported BPM project and its artifacts into another workspace.
