Import Configuration

exec/importcfg.js is a utility script that will import configurations of items configured in SCFG (e.g. message areas, files areas, external program configurations) that have been exported using Export Configuration

NOTE: importcfg can only import files that have been exported with exportcfg using the –json option

Usage

importcfg.js may be invoked via JSexec (e.g. from an OS command prompt) or load()ed from another JavaScript module.

Syntax

The command-line syntax (or load arguments) are detailed here:

usage: importcfg.js [-overwrite] [-debug] <cfg-type> <filename>

cfg-types (choose one):
	msg-grps
	msg-subs
	file-libs
	file-dirs
	file-prots
	file-extrs
	file-comps
	file-viewers
	file-testers
	file-dlevents
	text-secs
	xtrn-secs
	xtrn-progs
	xtrn-events
	xtrn-editors

For most types, the data will be imported with the same internal ids as was exported. For external sections and programs, special logic exists to match up based on the section or external code, which allows importing external programs from other systems.

Example to Export and Import External Sections and Programs

jsexec exportcfg xtrn-secs -json >secs.json
jsexec exportcfg xtrn-progs -json >progs.json
jsexec importcfg xtrn-secs <secs.json
jsexec importcfg xtrn-progs <progs.json
