Importing homepages data

To import homepages data:

  1. Open the Administration tool, and open the Import page.
  2. Select the data categories to import from the exported zip file. By default, all categories are included.

    The zip file may not contain all categories.

  3. Click Upload and browse and select a previously exported zip file.
  4. When The file has been successfully uploaded is displayed, click OK.
  5. Click Import.
  6. Confirm that you want to import data by clicking Yes in the Import Homepage data dialog.
  7. Review the information messages at the bottom of the page. When the Import operation successful is displayed, the import is completed.
  8. Close the Administration tool and start it again before verifying the newly imported data.

Be aware of the relationship between pages and widgets. The import is not a thorough copy of a page and all the widgets, but only the page data. For a page to work in a target environment, the same widgets must be available.


Be aware of the relationship between Infor Ming.le distribution groups, users, and permissions. If rules and permissions are imported, these entities must exist in the target environment as well.


Perform a full import only during off hours or a service window.


Filters for pages and widgets use the default title that is the title in the Administration tool listings but not necessarily the title displayed in the catalogs.
