Export/import services

Once you have configured your services, you can export them to another instance. This is useful in a test or pre-production instance.

Exporting a service

  1. To do so, click on the “Export” button in the top right corner of your services configuration page. A window opens allowing you to choose the operations you wish to export.
  2. You can choose to export all the operations of a service by clicking on the checkbox next to the name of your service, or only some operations by selecting them one by one.
  3. Once you have made your selection, download the corresponding configuration file by clicking on “Export selected operations“.

For security reasons, secure settings such as passwords or other authentication parameters are never exported.

Importing services

  1. To import services, click on the “Import” button in the top right corner of your services configuration page.
  2. A window opens and asks you to choose the file to import.
  3. Select the file in .json format, Iterop then offers you to choose the operations you want to import among those present in the file.

In the same way as for export, you can choose to export an entire service or only a part of it.
Here you can see that for each service not all operations are selected.

For each service, you can then choose to create a new service or import operations into an existing service of the same type. Note that if you decide to create a new service you will have to reconfigure your login credentials, as passwords are not imported.

Example

In the service “TEST database“, tests were performed on a test database and in parallel, a service named “production database” connecting to the real database was created.

By merging the operations of the test database directly on the service connecting to the production database, you will then have the same operations as during your tests.
