Now you can backup and restore configurations and parsing rules from one environment to another (or same-one).
Below are the steps to create Backup:
Step 1: Browse to Zap EP Configuration. Select all the configurations that need to be backed up and click button “Create Backup”
Step 2: Browse to Zap EP Configuration Backup.
Open the newly created record.
Copy the text from field “Configuration JSON” … now paste in a notepad and save the file.
Below are the steps required to restore the backup:
Step 1: Browse to Zap EP Configuration Backup. Create a new record and paste the entire text from notepad file (which was saved during Backup process) to field: Configuration Json…and save the record!
Step 2: Click button “Restore Backup”
Points to note regarding Backup and Restore process:
- Backup of configuration also includes the parsing rules.
- You can include multiple configuration records when taking backup.
- This is not a fool-proof process and you will still need to go through the restored configuration & parsing rule records to check if all fields have been set correctly.
However the process does most of the heavy lifting needed to re-create multiple configuration records… there by saving your productive time!
- The Queue lookup (in the configuration record) is not selected during the restore process and you need to manually select it.
