Zynk provides functions to import and export workflows and their data using a single workflow package file, which can easily be moved from one PC and another. For example, you may need to move a workflow when deploying an integration to a live environment.
The following data is included in a workflow package:
- The workflow (.wkf) file,
- All data contained in the workflow’s working directory (and sub directories),
- Any connections used by the tasks in the workflow,
- Any XSL transform files used by Auto Mapper tasks in the workflow.
It does not include the following:
- Any data files used by the workflow which aren’t stored in the working directory,
- The logs for the workflow as seen in the History tab,
- Any truth table data as seen on the Data tab.
Exporting A Workflow
To export a workflow, first find the workflow you want to export in the Workflows tab in Zynk. Right click on the workflow and click ‘Export’. You will see a screen like the one shown below:
- Enter file to save the workflow package to, or use the Browse button to select this.
- Click the Ok button to start the export.
- Once the export is complete, a confirmation message will be displayed.
Importing A Workflow
To import a workflow, first find the folder you want to add the workflow in the Workflows tab in Zynk. Right click on the folder and click ‘Import’. You will see a screen like the one shown below:
- Enter the workflow package file, or use the Browse button to select it.
- Click the Ok button to start the import. Please note that if a connection contained in the workflow package file already exists, it will be overwritten automatically without warning.
- Once the import is complete, a confirmation message will be displayed.
