Migrating tasks

You can export replication tasks to a file. When exporting a task using the command line, all exported tasks are saved to the imports folder under <product_dir>/Qlik/Replicate/Data. When exporting a task using the Qlik Replicate Console, one of the following occurs (according to your browser settings):

  • The task JSON file will be automatically downloaded to the default download location
  • You will be prompted for a download location

You can import an export file (*.json) to another instance of the Qlik Replicate Server. This lets you use a task that you created in Qlik Replicate in a different environment. For example, if you created tasks in a development environment and now want to use the task in a production environment.

Importing and exporting a task can be done using either the command line or the Qlik Replicate Console. When exporting or importing a task using the command line, you must perform this task on the computer where Qlik Replicate is installed.

Information note

If you need to access the computer with Qlik Replicate from a remote computer, you can use a telnet connection.

When you export a task to a different environment, you may need to edit the task information. For example, you may need to change the connection string for an endpoint.
