Import Using Data from an Export Containing Visualize Objects

You can import requirements into a project using data containing Visualize objects from a previous export. To import follow the steps stated in Import Using Data from a Typical Export. After import, the project needs to be processed by a Visualize server. This can be initiated in one of two ways:

  1. Restart a Visualize server. The server will pick up the new project that does not have a Visualize URL assigned. Processing will take some time. If a user logs in before processing completes, the project will not be on the initial list of available projects. After processing finishes, all clients will be notified.

    or

  2. Open Administrator and set the Visualize URL for the project. A message will be sent to the Visualize server, which will start to process the project. Processing will take some time. Until processing completes, this project will not be in the list of available projects. After processing finishes all clients will be notified.

If you try to open the project in Author before Visualize processes it, you will get a warning message that processing is required. After the Visualize server has completed processing the project, it can be opened in Author.

Note: Integrated projects are imported using the default security profile. However, if the default security profile has been changed to allow the user to have view access only, the import will fail.
