Exporting and Importing in OpenEdge Management : Exporting OpenEdge Management Library components

Exporting OpenEdge Management Library components

When you export a sharable OpenEdge Management component from one machine, you place a copy of the OpenEdge Management component's definition into a file that you can then import onto another machine and use. When you export sharable Library components, the export process automatically determines any related resource dependencies and exports these components, too. For example, if you select a job template to export and the job template references an action to be performed when the job completes, OpenEdge Management will automatically include that action in the exported file.
Note: You can perform only one export or import operation at any one time during a given HTTP session.
The OpenEdge Management components you can export are contained in the OpenEdge Management Library.
To perform the export process:
1. Click Library > Go to Library in the OpenEdge Management console menu.
The OpenEdge Management Component Library page appears.
2. In the Import and Export Components section, click Export Components.
The OpenEdge Management Export Step 1: Select Resources for Export page appears.
3. Select the component you intend to export.
The resources available for the export list appears.
You can click Select All to choose every one listed. To deselect all search criteria, click Unselect All.
4. Click OK to return to the OpenEdge Management Export Step 1: Select Resources for Export page.
The list of components selected for export appears.
5. Click Export when you have selected all components you want to export at this time. The OpenEdge Management Export Step 2: Specify Export File page appears.
In the Export to file field, OpenEdge Management provides a default path and filename for the export file to be created. You can change either default value in that field.
You can also indicate what action you want taken if the file already exists. The options available are:
*Display an error (default option).
*Overwrite existing file — Removes any data currently in the file.
*Update/add components to existing file — Allows you to add the components you just selected to the list of components already in the file. If you have selected for export a component that already exists in the .xml file, the old definition will be removed and the selected component added.
6. Choose one of the following:
*Back — Returns you to the OpenEdge Management Export Step 1: Select Resources for Export page.
*Finish — Initiates the export operation. The Exporting File page appears, noting the path and filename of the exported file. The Exporting File page is updated every three seconds. In general, the larger the number of components you are exporting in the export.xml file, the longer the operation can take.
*Cancel — Ends the export setup process.
Once the export operation is completed, the Export Summary Report page appears.
The header information on this page identifies the path and filename to which the exported components were sent. The date and time information identifies when the export operation occurred. The report details on the Export Summary Report page provide the list of components that were exported, updated, or determined to be dependent because they are referenced by an exported resource.
This process also determines if any errors occur that prevent the export from succeeding. If an error occurs, the error will appear in a separate window, and the report page will provide detailed information about the error.
7. Click Clear Report once you have reviewed and/or printed your exported resources list. You must select Clear Report before you can initiate another export operation.
