Exporting/Importing XML Forms

Hello all,

I've recently created an XML Forms application in our development SAP portal, and I'd like to export it/reimport it into our qa SAP portal. Both portals are EP5 SP5 with KM 5.0.

I created iViews, pages, and a roll for my XML Forms application in dev. I assigned the roll to myself, and things seem to be working just fine.

I exported the roll that I created, using the 'Include dependent content objects and supplementary files' switch for exporting. The export seemed to work fine.

I then imported this roll into our qa portal. The import seemed to run without problems. I assigned the role that I imported into qa to myself and refreshed the screen. The role shows up fine.

The problem is when going to that role, I get the message:

XML - Forms

No form name or type recovered supplied in query string. Syntax: XMLFormID=anyValidFormName. ?: OpsEventLog

I'm thinking that I'm missing a step here. How do I export/import XML Forms?

Thank you,

Stephen Spalding

    Hi Stephen,

    the XML forms at least can be transported via file system, see under (path given for PDK 5, must be more or less similar for real EP5): ...irjWEB-INFpluginsportalservicesknowledgemanagementetcxmlforms. Each dir under this root dir stands for one xml form. Just zip it and move to QA system. This at least is an acknowledged method, compare a sponsored links component for km search.article#_header1_1

    Hope it helps
