NOTE: Only the flow owner can export a flow.
Exported flows can be imported into the same system or different systems. Flow export is useful for:
Backups of work in progress
You cannot import flows that were exported from a different edition, release, or build of the product.
Deployment of work to Production environments
The ZIP file is downloaded to the default download location on your local desktop.
Tip: You can also export from Flow View. See Flow View Page.
NOTE: When you import a package, you import this ZIP file. You cannot import the contents of the ZIP. If your local environment automatically unzips ZIP files, please re-ZIP before you import. For more information, see Import Flow.
Tip: In general, avoid making changes in a Production environment. Instead, you should make changes in a Development environment, export from there, and reimport into the Production environment.
This file can be stored for safekeeping or imported back into the instance. For more information, see Import Flow.
