Encryption Options

  • Encrypt project for use on the same computer only
    The project file is encrypted with a computer specific encryption key and the project file can be imported on the same computer only.
  • Encrypt project with a password for use on the same computer or elsewhere
    The project file is encrypted with a password and can be imported on any computer after entering the correct password.
  • No Encryption
    The project file stores information in plain text. If this option is selected then credentials cannot be exported.

Credentials Option

  • Export credentials
    Configured passwords or access keys will be exported. This option is available for encrypted projects.
  • Do not export credentials
    Configured passwords or access keys will be removed from the exported project and need to be re-entered after import.

Network Host References Option

  • Export network host references
    If selected, then all network host references will be retained in the exported project. Use this option if the project is intended for import onto a computer within the same network environment.
  • Replace network host references with ‘localhost’ or a loopback IP address
    If selected, then all network host references are replaced. Use this option if the project is intended for import onto a computer within a different network environment. Host references need to be updated after project import to reflect the new network environment.

Import Project

To load all settings, including tasks, connector topics and connector tags, select “Import Project” from the “File” menu and open a previously exported project file. For the import to succeed, connector modules and processor modules that the project requires must be installed. Installed software modules must not be older than the software modules used when the project was exported.

Warning

Importing a project will overwrite all currently configured tasks, connector topics and processor settings.
