How to Export and Import Scenarios?

If you need to move your scenarios from one computer to another to another, or even from one user profile to another on the same computer, you can use the import/export features to do the move.

Use Export and Import to move scenarios in and out of projects residing in different workspaces or to move an entire project from one location to another. All the resources such as Images, Variables, Components, and Documents will accompany exported and imported scenarios.

Moving scenarios and/or components

To export SOME scenarios and/or components from a project, follow these steps:

  1. In ScenarioBuilder where the scenario resides, click the View tab.
  2. Click Scenario/Components Manager. The Scenarios/Components Manager window opens.
  3. In the Select column, select the checkbox for each scenario/component you want to export.
  4. Once all are selected, click Export. The Export Scenario and Components window opens.
  5. Click the ellipse button. The Save As window opens.
  6. Navigate to the folder where you want to store the export zip file that will be created. Note - the export folder is a neutral location from which the Scenarios will be imported; it is not intended to be the final location (i.e. the Project folder) for the Scenarios.
  7. Enter a name for the zip file in the File name textbox.
  8. Click Save. The Save As windows closes and you are returned to the Export Scenario and Compnents window.
  9. Click OK. Your exported Scenarios will be saved as a .zip folder. A confirmation message appears.
  10. Click OK to close the message.
  11. Click Close to close the Scenarios/Componets Manager window.

To import the scenarios/components, follow these steps:

  1. If you are moving the scripts from one computer to another, copy the exported zip file to the computer where you want the scripts to reside.
  2. Open ScenarioBuilder.
  3. If the project where you want to import the scenarios/components is NOT the currently active project, then click View > Project Manager. Select the project you want and then click Switch. NOTE - if you want to import the scenarios/components into a new project, follow the steps for importing a project.
  4. Click Scenario/Components Manager.
  5. Click Import. The Open window appears.
  6. Navigate to the folder where the exported zip file resides and then double-click the zip file. The import process begins.
