Export package

The export package is a ZIP file containing a folder for each target.

In the following example, 11 targets are included in the zipped package; each target has its defined folder. Along with these folders is a meta file:

The meta file contains the information about the export package required for importing. The information includes:

  • The version of the export environment.
  • The name of the user who created the export package.
  • The targets under items being exported.
  • Whether system-owned settings were included, and the date the exported targets were modified after.
{
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "m_version": "3.2.0.420",
  "user": "Administrator",
  "source": "abcdefg123456",
  "options": {
    "items": [
      "schema",
      "export_profiles",
      "media_processing_sets",
      "option_lists",
      "policies",
      "portal_pages",
      "rendition_links",
      "scripts",
      "settings",
      "taxonomies",
      "triggers"
    ],
    "include_system_owned": false,
    "since": null
  }
}

The folder structure allows you to remove targets that are not required to be imported. For example, if the target for triggers is not required, you can simply delete the triggers folder, and you do not need to update the meta file. If you delete the triggers folder, the package can still be imported:

In this case, the triggers target is not included in the import job.
