3.1.1. Options

  • I own the imported data
    • Checking this box determines whether the import overwrites the owner of all database records in all imported database tables.
    • A detailed description of ownership and co-ownership of records is provided in a separate “Administrator's Guide”.
  • Import record history
    • Checking this box determines whether the record history of all imported database tables should be imported.
  • Import rights
    • Checked – When importing rights, user and user group IDs will be used exactly according to the rights settings in the source (exported) application and in all its child objects. This form of import can cause a data inconsistency between the rights in the source and destination applications. The same IDs can indicate different users or user groups in two different NET Genium. At the same time, some IDs may not exist in the target NET Genium. In the rights settings of the imported application, only ID numbers will be displayed instead of the name of users or user groups.
    • Unchecked – The imported application and all its child objects will have the rights to the user group “Users” set.
  • Keep bindings to other applications
    • Checked – The interconnection of links to other applications will be maintained exactly according to the interconnection of links in the source (exported) application and in all its subordinate objects. Linked applications or child objects may not exist in the target NET Genium. In this case, an error message about data consistency violation is displayed and the import is stopped.
    • Unchecked – Links to other applications and their children will not be linked. If there are links to other applications, it is necessary to go through and adjust these links.
