Managing components in a workspace

You can view and manage all the data design components such as files, connections, or schema of your project on the Workspace page.

Quick Links includes list of links to access the frequently used features of HCL OneTest™ Data. You can export or import the project by using the list of links in Quick Links. You can also export or import a selective list of components.

Exporting and importing components

The export and import functions move projects or individual components between the project and the local file system. By using the export and import functions, you can reuse project or components in multiple projects. For example, you can export a project running on a shared server to import it to your project instance running on your local machine.

When you export a project, a zip file is created and is downloaded to the local file system. If you import a project, the project is moved from the local file system into the repository.

You can also select any individual component such as connections, schemas, or files to export and import. For example, you might want to copy a schema from one project to another. When you export individual component, you can choose to include dependent components.

Exporting a project or components

When you want to reuse your existing project for another project, you can export either the selected components or an entire project to your local file system.

  3. Select schemas, files, or connections from the drop-down list. You can select multiple components to export.
  4. Click OK to export.

Importing a project or components

Before you begin

  • You must have a project or any component of a project in your local file system.
  • The project or component that you want to import must be in a zip format.

Procedure

  1. From the list of links in Quick Links, click Import into workspace. The Import dialog box appears.
  2. Select a file you want to import into your workspace and click Import.

Results

The selected file is imported successfully into the workspace.
Note: If the project file you selected to import already exists in the workspace, the import process fails.
