Exporting a Portal

Template name

Enter a template name. The template name matches the filename used for the export file.

Display name

When importing the portal, the display name is used in the template list. You can also enter a short description of the portal. This will also be shown later in the template list when importing the portal.

Export directory

Use the button to select the directory in which the export should be stored.

Clear mail configuration

With the setting Clear mail configuration, the settings that are set in the current portal in the Tools module / Email Service, are not incorporated in the export.

Overwrite previous export

By selecting Overwrite previous export, the last export will be overwritten with the new one..

Export ".noexport"-directories

Individual directories can be excluded from the export by placing a file with the name .noexport in the relevant directory. Directories which would thus be excluded from the export will nevertheless be included in the export if the setting Export .noexport directories is set.

Remove database passwords

With this setting, the passwords for authentication to the portal database will be reset in the portal export. Logging on to the database will then be possible without a password.

Number of exports to be retained

Here you can specify how many portal exports should be retained in total. If this number is exceeded, the oldest export will automatically be deleted.

Export format

Four Export formats are available: the portal can be exported in the form of a ZIP archive, a tar archive, a tar.gz archive, or as an uncompressed directory.

Use Speed-optimized data format

With this setting, the XML is written to the export file in a format that can be read faster when importing.

A portal export contains all applications, as well as data, layouts, users, relationships and all processes in the portal.

Portal exports can be imported via the menu item Portal / Import portal. This will first log you off from the currently opened portal.
