Object Schema Import
To import an Object Schema definition, navigate to:
- Insight -> Configure -> Import / Export
- Select: Object Schema Import
After importing an object schema, you must reindex Insight.
For Importing an Exported object schema created with Insight, version prior to: 4.5.0, see the bottom of this page for instructions.
Configure the Object Schema Import
The system to Import to, MUST have the the same Insight "Name" Attribute setting as the system that the Object Schema was exported from. This is the standard case and should therefore not be a problem.
A list of files (.zip) showing the file names of previously exported object schemas made available for Import.
|Name||The name of the new object schema that will be created by the import. The name can not be the same as any existing object schema name.||Mandatory|
|Key||The key for the new object schema. The key can not be the same as any existing object schema key.||Mandatory|
|Description||The description for the new object schema.|
Only active if "Import objects" is selected to "Yes", otherwise this option is disabled.
|Password||If the file chosen for the import is protected by a password, then that password must be provided in order to perform the import.|
Importing an Exported object schema created with Insight, version prior to: 4.5.0
If you have exported an object schema from an earlier insight version by using the Object Schema -> Export functionality (illustrated below).
You will have to process the file manually before importing it to Insight. What you need to do is;
Base64 decode the file and rename the file to schema.xml
Zip the schema.xml file, the zip file can have a name of your choosing. You will have to include a property file specifying your insight version as well as the amount of objects in your schema (if no objects are included use the value one (1) as the total_objects_in_export). See the example of the file below.
- Put the zip-file in your JiraHOME/import/insight folder
- Import the file as described above
