Exporting Artifacts

You export artifacts to create backups that can be used in migrating applications across environments, for example, from a test environment to a production environment.

You select the artifacts to export. You can export all artifacts in the service or a combination of the artifacts belonging to these components:

  • Planning
  • Data Management
  • Calculation Manager
  • Groups and Membership
  • Reporting

Snapshots that you create through the export process are stored for 60 days after which they are automatically deleted from the service.

To export artifacts:

  1. From the Home page, select Tools, and then Migration.
    Categories tab of the Migration screen
  2. Select the Categories tab.
  3. Under Name, select the artifacts that are to be exported. You can choose Select All, or Clear Selections.
  4. Click Export.
    Migration Export dialog box
  5. On the Export dialog box, click OK.

    You may change the default export folder name. For folder names, use only characters that are supported by the native operating system. For example, Windows does not allow colons in a folder name.

  6. Review the Migration Status Report.
