You can import configuration files from another Aria instance by following the steps below.

  1. In the Source URL field, enter the address of the Aria instance from which the configuration data will be imported.
  2. In the Client Number field, enter the client number of the Aria instance from which the configuration data will be imported.
  3. In the Authorization key field, enter the Authorization Key of the Aria instance from which the configuration data will be imported.
  4. Click Go to import the configuration data.When the Select a file to import list displays, click a file name to import.
  5. In the Conflict Resolution area, select a method for handling data model conflicts:
  • Select Overwrite all to replace all conflicting data structures with the new data from the source file.
  • Select Skip all to preserve all the existing data structures in the destination instance.
  • Select Ask me to be prompted whenever a duplicate object name is encountered.
  1. Select Send me an email notification when the Import is complete to be notified when the import is complete.
  2. Click Import to begin the import process. The Import Status screen displays.

Note: If you are working with a large data set, do not close your browser window or logout of Aria until the XML file retrieval is complete. If the Import Status of the import job displays “Reading export configuration”, the retrieval is still in progress.

  1. When the Data model conflict check completed message appears, click Review data model conflicts to complete the import process.
