Importing applications

In this dialog, you can select the desired application for import by selecting the corresponding checkbox to the left of the application name. All applications can be selected or deselected via the context menu.

By clicking Select all Applications all applications will be selected for the import. Clicking Deselect all Applications will cancel the selection.

The setting Import with application data will cause the data in the application to be imported as well. This setting can only be selected when importing an application that contains data and if it does not reference other applications, or when all referenced applications are also selected for export.

With the setting update existing applications, Intrexx will check whether an application already exists on the portal with an identical GUID to the GUID of the application to be imported.

For applications that have been exported with group permissions, the setting to Export with group permissions can be set. This will cause all application, data group, and page permissions that affect a user group to be imported as well. They can be assigned to existing user groups, or new groups can be created, which will then be assigned to the imported groups.

As with all elements in Intrexx, applications are also given a unique key, the so-called GUID (Globally Unique Identifier). If you import an application that you have previously exported, both applications will possess the same GUID. When overwriting an application, data will be retained.

Please note that individual data fields that have been deleted in the import application will no longer be available after overwriting an application. The data entered in these data fields will be irretrievably lost.

If you do not activate the update existing applications setting, new, unique GUIDs will be generated and assigned to the imported application and elements contained within it. The imported application will be newly created as a copy of the original.
