Importing Configurations

You can import vault-specific configurations from a configuration export file. This way you can, for example, import configurations from one M-Files server computer to another.

Do the following steps to import configurations from a configuration export file:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files Server.
  3. In the left-side tree view, expand Document Vaults, and then expand a vault.
  4. Still in the left-side tree view, select Configurations.
  5. In the gray navigation area, right-click a configuration category and select Import from File... from the context menu.
    Result:The Open dialog is opened.
  6. Locate and select the configuration export file, and then click Open.
    Result:A confirmation dialog appears after the import is complete.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Right-click the category and select Save All from the context menu to save the imported configurations.
The selected configurations are imported to the server computer.
