Export and Import Environment Configuration

Importing Environments

Before you begin the Environment import process, first locate the file you wish to import. This file must have the extension "environment" (for example, c:\AllEnvironments.environment). If this file was exported using password-protection then you must also have the password handy. In order to start importing please select Containers → Import from the main menu to launch the Import Environment Wizard. The welcome page will appear first and you can instruct the wizard to not display this page again in the future. Press Next to advance to the next page.

The next window will ask you to select the file to import. Enter the file name and press the Next button.

If the file you are trying to import is password-protected, for example when you receive an exported environment file from another user via insecure email, you will be asked to enter the same password used when the environment file was originally exported.

You will then be presented with the list of Environments included in the file. You do not have to import all Environments. Select the Environments you wish to import and press the Next button.

Note: If you already have an Environment with the same name as the one that will be imported then Combine will not override your existing Environment. Instead, Combine will import the Environment under a different name. For example, if you have an Environment named Production and you are importing another Environment with the same name, the new Environment will be imported under the name Production2.

Press the Next button and then Finish in the last page of the wizard to complete the import process.
