An exported flow can be imported into .


Limitations

You cannot import flows that were exported before Release 6.8. See Changes to the Object Model.

NOTE: You cannot import flows into a version of the product that is earlier than the one from which you exported it. For example, if you develop a flow on free , which is updated frequently, you may not be able to import it into other editions of the product, which are updated less frequently.

Imported flows do not contain the following objects:

NOTE: Depending on the import environment, some objects in the flow definition may be incompatible. For example, the connection type may not be valid, or a datasource may not be reachable. In these cases, the objects may be removed from the flow, or you may have to fix a reference in the object definition. After import, you should review the objects in the flow to verify.


Define import rules

Before you import a package, you may need to create import mapping rules to apply to your package. For example, if the Development data is stored in a different location than the Production data, you may need to create import rules to remap paths and connections to use to acquire the data from the Production environment. 

NOTE: Import rules are applied at the time of import. They cannot be retroactively applied to releases that have already been imported.

For more information, see Define Import Mapping Rules.


Import

NOTE: You cannot import into a Dev instance if your account for the instance contains the Deployment role.


NOTE: When you import a flow, you must import a ZIP file containing the JSON definition.

  3. Click Deployments.
  4. Select or create the deployment into which to import the package.

    2. The package is selected as the active one for the deployment.
    3. If there are issues with the import, click Download logs to review the missing or malformed objects.

Tip: After you import, you should open the flow in Flow View and run a job to verify that the import was successful and the rules were applied. See Flow View Page.
