- The Export Event Process dialog box provides a list of all the Event Processes available for exporting along with all the Event Processes referred to by this Event Process as well as the named configurations used in those Event Processes. A uUser can choose the artifacts to be exported by selecting the check boxes next to their names.
Figure 2: Selecting Dependencies and Configurations for exporting
If the exported Event Process has other Event Processes as dependencies and each of those Event Processes in turn have dependencies then all these Event Processes are exported along with their configurations in a chain manner into a single folder and the dependency chain is saved in a metadata file.
- To change the default location (Desktop) to which the Event Process is saved, specify the file name and location to save and click OK. The Event Process project along with dependencies and configurations chosen will be saved as a .zip file.
