    To perform the transport manually by using the commands which can be integrated in the Configuration iView. If you have implemented the Change and Transport System (CTS), you can perform the export and import of the configuration data automatically. Generate a transport package in the following formats:

    ● Config Archive: Format with the file extension .configarchive

    The configuration data in XML format are available in this file compressed as a ZIP file.

    ● PAR Archive: Format with the file extension .par - This format is used in the portal environment. The generated PAR file contains the configuration data as a compressed ZIP file in the format .configarchive. In addition, the PAR file contains the files MANIFEST.MF and portalapp.xml.

    The transport of configuration data comprises the following steps:

    1. Creation of the transport package

    2. Export of the transport package

    3. Import of the transport package

    To create a transport package, proceed as follows:

    1. Start the export function.

    a.In the portal, choose System Administration - System Configuration -Knowledge Management- Content Management.

    b.In the menu bar, choose Actions - Export - Start.

    2. Put together the transport package.

    a.In the configuration, navigate to the object that you want to export.

    b.Select the required instances and choose Export.

    From the options, you can choose whether referenced configuration objects are to be exported as well. If you have activated this option, you can use another option to specify whether invalid references are also to be exported. Alternatively, you can use the menu bar to put the export package together. Choose Actions - Export - Add. This allows you to choose not only individual instances

    3. Check what you have put together.

    In the menu bar, choose Actions - Export - Edit Export Package. You can check here which entries the transport package currently contains. You can remove configuration objects by deselecting the checkbox in front of the object and choosing OK.

    4. Generate the transport package and complete the export.

    CTS transport: Work through the following steps for the transport with CTS.

    a. Specify a name for the transport package. Optionally, you can enter a comment for this transport. The selected configuration objects are listed and, if necessary, the configuration objects that they reference.

    b.Choose Start Export to CTS. On the next screen, you can find information about the transport to CTS.

    c.Choose Close to exit the transport mode.

    Import of a Transport Package in the Format .par

    1. Upload the PAR file to the portal. In the portal, choose System Administration - Support - Portal Runtime - Administration Console.

    2. Select the file in the input field beneath Upload Archive and then choose Upload.

    3. To activate the imported configuration data in the system, you must restart the application server.

    Access permissions allow users to display, change, or delete items. You can define these permissions for both folders and documents or other items.

    ● Service permissions allow users to use certain functions, . defining the permissions only for folders:

    Permissions in access control lists (ACLs). An entry in an access control list grants a specific access permission, for example, read permission, to a user, group, or role. There are two separate access control lists for permissions and service permissions. An administrator can set up the system in such a way that it can be defined the permissions in the NTFS file system.
