Transport Custom XML Forms

Hi All

I have custom forms developed in dev system and are working well there, I need to move those forms from dev to quality, so I have copied and pasted them using webdav URL (through file explorer manually place them to physical location)

But I can't see a New form added under Folder > New >Forms menu

I have made the settings under Folder Setiing at System Configuration >Content Managemnt >Folder-based Publishing-->Folder Settings with priority as 10.

Is there any system restart need to be performed after new forms tranported

Please advise me how to resolve it.

    • Yes, I have given the path to the folder.

      Can you pelase tell me Is there any thing missed in my approach which I follwed as below.

      1. Copied the content from dev system from this location *etc/xmlformst/NewXMLFormsLocation* (where XML forms located) using webdav url.

      2. Pasted the content in quality system at this location *etc/xmlforms/*

      3. At Forms Availability -- > folder settings

      set the parameters as

      Id : NewXMLFormsLocation
                                                 Priority: 10
                                                 Folder Path: /documents/customNews/**
                                                 Forms to Exclude: (left blank)
                                                 Forms to Include: NewXMLFormsLocation

      After I did this configuration, I don't see any new form has come in Folder >New >Forms menu.

      But, I tried by replacing the Forms to Include value with existing SponsoredLinks, then I could see the result in Forms menu.

      Where is it going wrong when I try with NewXMLFormsLocation

      Thanks in Advance,
