Platform and Administration are two built-in packages, each containing a predefined list of resources to be exported. They can be opened in read-only mode and they are only suitable for exporting.
The package export steps are described in the Exporting section.
The Administration package regroups all the objects added during business configuration, such as templates or typologies.
The contents of these two packages cannot me modified. In contrast, these packages always contain the most up-to-date data available.
Creating a package
Nonetheless, choosing the data to be exported requires creating a package.
Exporting packages is not authorized if the resources exported have out-of-the-box IDs. Therefore, the IDs of exportable resources must be changed by using a name that is different from the templates provided as standard by Adobe Campaign Standard. For example, to export test profiles, an ID containing the value "SDM" or "sdm" must not be used.
To do this, click the Create button in the list of package contents.
The element is created immediately. To cancel creating it, go back to the list and check the corresponding box to delete it.
In the package content screen, specify a name and an ID.
Click the Edit properties button if you would like to add a description and restrict access to certain users.
Use the Create element button in the Export content tab to select the resources you wish to export.
Resources are shown in alphabetical order and can be filtered by name. Their technical name is displayed in brackets. Select an element from the list and confirm.
The resource name is displayed in the Export content tab. To modify a resource, check the corresponding box and use the Show detail of the element selected button.
Using the query editor allows you to filter the elements to be exported. For more on this, refer to the Editing queries section.
You can export up to 5000 objects per resource.
Once you have specified all the resources to be exported, save your selection.
Click the Start export button to start exporting.
The exported file is stored in the download folder of the browser in use. It is automatically named "package_xxx.xml", whereby "xxx" corresponds to the package ID.
When the operation has finished, several sections appear:
Export status: this section shows whether the operation has been carried out correctly.
You can consult the different steps of the export via the Log tab. This contains the statuses of all the former exports.
When selecting an element from the package content list that has already been exported, the Log and Last export tabs are still available.
