Import and export pipelines

This topic explains how to export pipelines from a source server and import them to a target server.

You can create and validate pipelines on one server, export the pipelines, and then import them to another server.

Export pipelines

When you export a pipeline, the system creates a JSON file that contains the pipeline's configuration data.

To export a pipeline:

  1. Navigate to Management > Pipelines.
  2. In the list of pipelines, click Export next to a pipeline.

You can open the file in a text editor or save it. The saved JSON file has the same name as the selected pipeline.

Import pipelines

When importing a pipeline, you can create a new pipeline or upgrade an existing one.

To import a pipeline:

  1. Navigate to Management > Pipelines.
  2. Click Import. The Import Pipeline dialog box opens.
  3. (Optional) To upgrade an existing pipeline, select Upgrade Pipeline.

    If the pipeline's name in the JSON file (not the name of the file itself) matches an existing pipeline, the pipeline's properties are updated with the new values, and new items, such as resources, are added. If the name of the pipeline is not found, the command has no effect.

    Note: The pipeline's name is the first parameter in the JSON file.

  4. Click Choose File and select the JSON file containing the pipeline.

  5. Click Import.
