Export/Import Appearance Configurations¶
Appearance configurations use Application Configuration Packages(ACPs) to export and import configurations between environments.
Application Configuration Package dropdown can be used to manage appearance configuration related ACPs functionalities.
Note: Multiple configurations can be added to the same ACP.
Learn more on how to use ACPs to export and import configurations here
What is included in the ACP?¶
Once an appearance configuration is added to an ACP, when exporting the package, the following will be included in the package.
Appearance ID : 200340
Name : Global Company
Description : Global description
Context : Custom/Global
Notes : Config notes
Context Mapping : USER=LOREM-USER
Properties array :
|W-100-COLOR||App bar background color||#ffb90d|
|W-100-IMAGE||App bar logo||RESOURCE: logo-wide.png|
Important: Although the property resource mappings are included in the ACP, the actual resource file won't be included. Therefore when importing the ACP to a different environment, the resource files should be uploaded separately. When uploading the resources, for resource mappings to work properly, it's important that the resource files have the same file names as they were uploaded to the previous environment.
Aurena Agent can be used to download multiple resource files at once keeping the file names intact.
Note: The published status of the importing configuration will be always 'Unpublished'. First make sure the configurations are working properly with Appearance Preview mode and then publish them manually.
