This topic describes how you can export and import data to/from an XML file into Micro Focus Connect. It also describes which folders need to be added to your backup plan.
This section describes how to export data that you want to use with another connector. You can export resources such as data sources, connections, connection groups, and user maps in order to share them across installations. When you export data, Micro Focus Connect creates an .xml file that can be imported into another installation.
To export data:
- Click the Actions button in the top banner, and select Export from the menu. The Export Connect Data dialog box opens.
- Navigate through the tabs and select the data you want to export. The Servers tab is only visible for users with Site roles with a multi-node server installation.
Note: Exports do not include your stored passwords. In the exported file, the Password fields show OBFUSCATED_PASSWORD. Before importing a file, manually update the Password fields with the correct passwords. Optionally, if you do not want to include passwords in the import file, import the file with the OBFUSCATED_PASSWORD value, and edit the data sources before using them.
This section describes how to import data from an XML file into Micro Focus Connect.
To import data:
Click the Actions button in the top banner, and select Import from the menu. The Import Connect Data dialog box opens.
- Navigate to the XML import file.
- Click Import.
Note: Imports do not include Global settings. You will need to set them manually. For details, see Troubleshooting. If you did not update the passwords in your imported file, you need to edit the data sources and set the correct passwords before using them.
With the additional support of OpenText products as Master products in configurations, Micro Focus Connect stores necessary field relationship and configuration information in a database.
You can backup all of the Micro Focus Connect data using the Settings menu item. Click the Settings button on the toolbar and choose Backup the database,
An alternate backup method is:
- Stop the Micro Focus Connect service.
- Back up the AppData/data/db directory and its contents, as you would back up any other critical data.
- Optionally, back up the AppData/data/Connect.xml file.
