Exporting and importing triggers

Top  Previous  Next

The ability to export and import triggers can come in handy in situations wherein you want to copy certain triggers from one instance of MFT Server to another. For example, you can use this feature if you're creating triggers in a test environment and want to apply those trigger definitions to your production environment.

 

Exporting triggers

 

To export a trigger, go to the Triggers module and select the trigger(s) you want to export. Next, click the Export button.

The selected triggers will then be exported to a file using JSON format. You may specify the filename of the file where you wish to store the trigger definitions.

Importing triggers

 

You can use this feature to import trigger definitions. For example, you can use it to import triggers which you may have exported from another MFT Server instance. To import triggers, just navigate to the Triggers module and then click the Import button.

Promoting triggers

 

Use this feature to publish one or more triggers to a remote MFT Server instance. It's basically as if you're exporting and importing triggers without the use of trigger definition files. To promote one or more triggers, navigate to the Triggers module, select the trigger(s) you want to publish, and then click the Promote button.

When the Promote Triggers dialog appears, specify the following parameters and then click OK.

 

Host/IP - The hostname or IP address of the target MFT Server instance

Server port - The port number of the Management REST API. The default is 10880

Username - A valid administrative username on the target MFT Server instance

Password - The username's corresponding password

Domain - The domain on the target MFT Server instance where you want to publish the selected triggers

 

Overwrite existing triggers with same name - Tick this if you want to overwrite existing triggers with the same names as the triggers you wish to publish.
