  • Importing Business Objects and Profiles
    Using the XML Import feature under the Utilities node in the Configuration tab, you can import XML documents. This is a required step during initial system implementation to populate the database with QAD-supplied default data, and can be used to transfer XML business object and profile definitions from one QXO instance to another. See Managing Business Object XML Files for information on dumping XML from QXO.
    Prior to running this load, the source applications must be set up in QXO using the correct naming convention.
    Important: The predefined source application types are used to load the QAD standard business objects and profiles. These source application types are named:
    The standard QAD objects to be loaded reside in:
    This is also the directory location used when you export business objects and profiles as described in Managing Business Object XML Files. You must copy the files from the originating QXO server to the target server prior to loading them into another instance of QXO.
    In the XML Import screen under the Configuration tab, enter the source application type as defined in Source Applications, and two asterisks to denote a full import for both business objects and profiles. For example, for eB2 enter:

    XML Import of QAD Business Objects and Profiles
    Select both checkboxes and choose Load. A processing note displays during the load.
    After the load, messages display to inform you of the successful loads of each object.
    To load specific files, such as those originating from another instance of QXO, follow the same steps, but enter the source application and the specific object names you want to import.

    XML Import of Custom or Individual Objects
    You can reload BOs, profiles, or both that are not defined by QAD. All links to the existing transactions (for example, raw messages and subscriber messages) are kept after the reload.
