Export

Once requirements are stored in Caliber, you may want to export them to other formats and other tools. Caliber can export requirements to XML, MS Access, CSV, SQL Server or Oracle format. You can export a project or requirement information from a server into an ASCII file. That file can be imported into the same or another server and other applications. You must be a member of the Administrator group to export information.

The export utility provides a way of selecting requirements, requirement types, users, groups, user-defined attributes and project information, referred to as objects, for export. By default, if a project contains Visualize objects, the objects will be exported with the project.

After an export, a log file is created that contains information about what was exported and any error messages. The export utility creates a separate ASCII file for each type of object exported. You specify the name and path for the exported data. The export utility creates a directory or “data set,” using the name and path specified. It then creates individual files for each type of object exported. The exported data contains object names only and does not contain coded data. The data files adhere to a particular format. See related information on “RM Export Object Format”.

It is possible to create a data file in the correct format for import using programs other than this application’s export utility. If the import utility is used to import data created by programs other than this export utility, it is your responsibility to ensure that the data is accurate and properly formatted. Warning! It is possible to import corrupted or incorrect data with the import utility. Back up your database before using the import utility. Micro Focus is not responsible for the results of importing data created by programs other than this export utility. You can:

The project administrator can also export project information from one Caliber server to another using Caliber Export.
