Import Resolutions

    Light

Overview

Designer Elements can be exported from one environment and imported into another. If issues are found during import that could not be resolved automatically. Decisions allow the user to resolve these issues manually. This document demonstrates how to fix the issues found while importing the projects.


Applying resolution individually

All the issues related to import are listed individually immediately after proceeding to import the project. Users can resolve them by selecting preferred resolutions from the drop-down menu available next to the listed issue.

1. List of Issues2. Resolutions to apply from the drop-down

Refer to the following table to choose the appropriate Import Resolution:

Import ResolutionDescription
Ignore Issue and ImportThis resolution will ignore the issue and import the project as it is.
Keep Local VersionThis resolution will keep the local version of the element as it is and will ignore the elements from the imported project.
OverrideThis resolution will override the corresponding element which is already present in the local.
Move to Current FolderIf the folder is missing its parent folder, this resolution will move the elements to the current folder, i.e., where the project is being imported.
Exclude From ImportThis resolution will not import the element.
Make as Root FolderThis resolution will make the folder appear at the root level in the folder tree.
Note:
All the Import Resolutions options will not be available in the drop-down for all issues.

After selecting the appropriate Resolution, a pop-up will appear to continue or to go back to the previous window to change the resolution.


Applying resolution by Category

Decisions has the ability to group all the similar issues found while importing the projects.

  1. To group all the similar issues together, click on 'View Issues by Category' located at the top right corner of the Resolve Import Issues dialog box.
  2. This will create a category with a title and a description. This will also display the number of issues in each category within the bracket.
  3. Resolution can be applied to the entire category at once from the drop-down menu available next to each category. This will apply the resolution to all the issues under that category.
Note:
If the no. of issues exceeds 50, by default Decisions will load all the issues in Category, users can click on View all Import Issues to see the complete list
Refer to the following table for all the categories and their Description.

Searching for issues

Users can also use the search box located at the top left corner of the Import Resolution dialog box to search for Designer Elements that might cause problems while importing. The search box is allowed to search only the name of the elements. (eg. name of the Folders, Flows, Forms, etc.)


Downloading the issues

Users can download all the import issues by clicking on the Download Issues button located at the bottom left corner of the Import Resolution dialog box. This will download a *.CSV file containing all the Import Issues.


After successfully applying all the resolutions users can continue to Import the project.
