Environment Configuration

BioT provides the option to export an environment's configuration, allowing you to then import the same configuration to a different environment, and create a duplicated environment.

Exporting Environment Configuration

BioT recommends performing a factory reset before importing an environment configuration, to prevent errors in the import.

To export an existing configuration:

  1. From the BioT Console, click on the Settings icon at the top right-hand side of the BioT toolbar.
  2. Click Environment configuration.
  1. Click Export File.
  1. Enter a name for the exported file and click Start Export.

The export starts and is saved on the Cloud for use when you want to import to a new environment.

Importing Environment Configuration

To import a configuration to a new environment:

  1. From the BioT Console, click on the Settings icon at the top right-hand side of the BioT toolbar.
  2. Click Environment configuration.
  1. Click Import File.
  1. Select the environment configuration file you want to import and click Start Import.

The import starts and will replace the existing environment configuration with the imported environment configuration.

Notes

  • When you import an environment, it automatically recognizes all exports available which are compatible with your current release. For example, if you are importing from a development environment which is on version 2.3.15, you will only see exports from other environments that are on version 2.3.15.
  • Best practice requires performing a factory reset before trying to import an environment, unless the environment is a brand new one that has not yet been touched. If there are existing entities in the environment they will create errors with the import.
