Exporting tasks

The following section explains how to export a task using either the Qlik Replicate Console or the command line.

  1. Switch to Tasks view (make sure you're in Designer mode).
  2. Do one of the following:

    • In TASKS tab, select the task you want to export and then either click the Export toolbar button or right-click the task and select Export.

      OR

    • In the TASK_NAME tab (opened when a task is being edited), click the Export Task toolbar button.

    Depending on your browser settings, one of the following will occur:

    • The task JSON file will be automatically downloaded to the default download location
    • You will be prompted for a download location. In this case, save the JSON file to your preferred location.
  1. From the Qlik Replicate computer where you defined the task you want to import, open the Qlik Replicate command line console by doing the following:

    On Windows: Go to All Programs in the Start menu and point to Qlik Replicate, then to Utilities and then select Qlik Replicate Command Line.

    A command-line console is displayed with the correct prompt for Qlik Replicate.

    Information note

    You can also open the Windows command-line console and change the directory to the following:

    <Qlik Replicate Installation Directory>\bin

    For example, to use the path to the folder or directory where Qlik Replicate is installed by default, type: C:\Program Files\Attunity\Replicate\bin.

    On Linux: Run the following command in the Replicatebin directory:

    source ./arep_login.sh

  2. At the prompt in the command-line console, type the following:

    repctl -d data-directory exportrepository task=task_name[folder_name=path]

    By default, a file called <task_name>.json containing the exported task settings is created in the <product_dir>\data\imports folder. If you want the file to be created in a different folder, include the folder_name=path parameter in the command.

    After the file has been created, you can import it into another Qlik Replicate instance as described in Importing tasks.

    Information note

    If the <product_dir>\data folder was installed in a non-default location during the installation - OR - if it was later moved to a non-default location, you need to tell Replicate where the folder is located.

    This is done by including the -d <data_folder> parameter in the command.

    Example:

    repctl -d D:\Data exportrepository task=mytask
