Publish import and export

Users can export and import publish jobs if the underlying objects (datasets and the same sources/entities within those datasets) exist in both environments.

Information note

For Publish jobs that use QVDs, QVDs must be provisioned on the import side in advance using standard QVD ingestion processes. If this is not done the import will fail.
