Exporting from a Source Environment

To export the IBM® Cognos® entries, you create or modify an export deployment specification and then run the export.

You can also use a previously saved deployment specification for export or for redeployment of your entries.

The entries are exported to an export deployment archive Deployment Archives in the source environment. Later, you import the archive entries into the target environment. You can update the entries in the target environment using the entries from the deployment archive.

For information on conflict resolution during deployments, see Deployment Conflict Resolution Rules When Importing and Exporting.

When you export, you select the entries to deploy, and you set the options that are used as defaults when importing.
