To export a release:

1. From the Repository Manager menu, select Define, Releases.

The Releases window opens.

2. Perform a query that retrieves the release to be exported.


You can also open a release from the Manage tab of the catalog, by double-clicking on the name.

3. In the Releases window, click the Export Release button.

The following question appears:

You are about to export the <Repository Code>_<Release Nr> release to:

<Folder for Releases>\<Repository Code>_<Release Nr>.xml


4. Click Yes if you want to export this repository.

If the Backup checkbox for the release is selected, first a copy is made of the existing release (if any). It is copied to a document with name:

<rep version>_<release nr>.old.xml

Then, a DOS command box is opened, and a USoft Definer is opened for the account of the repository version. In this Definer, the release is exported.

Depending on the size of the repository, this may take a while.

Once the export is finished, the DOS command box and the USoft Definer window are closed, and in the Repository Manager, the message Release exported appears.

5. Click OK.

In the Releases window, the Released field is set to the current date and time, and in the catalog, an icon appears to denote that this release has been exported.

6. You can click the View Release button to view the release in an external editor.
