  • 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

  • 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 group and in all its child objects. This form of import can cause a data inconsistency between the rights in the source and destination application groups. The same IDs can indicate different users or user grou ps 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 group, only ID numbers will be displayed instead of the user or user group name.
    • Unchecked - The imported application group and all its child objects will have the rights to the user group ”Users” set.
  • Maintain links to other applications
    • Checked - The interconnection of links to other application groups will be maintained exactly according to the interconnection of links in the source (exported) application group and in all its subordinate objects. Linked application groups or subordinates 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 - The interconnection of links to other application groups and their children will not be maintained. If there are links to other application groups, it is necessary to go through and adjust these links.
