Step 1: Select Import Module
From the list of Uploaded Import Modules, click on the one that you would like to import. You can also use the Actions button.
In this guide we will use an Import Module with one Integration, since this is the top level object in the Repository Model and all related child objects will also be included in the import by default.
Show imported import modules
The option Show imported import modules, shows previously imported import modules in list when checked
Import modules that have NOT been previously imported are listed by default (keeps the list clean by default)
Include deleted import modules
The option Include deleted import modules, includes deleted import modules in the list when checked
Step 2: Select item(s) to import
In the tree, select items to be Imported and click on the Next button
Step 3: Affected item(s)
In the Affected item(s) step, Nodinite compares the current content in the instance with the selected items to be imported. If there is a conflict, you are given the chance to perform modification. The right side is the net end result.
Example of a conflicting change
Once you are done merging the result, click on the Start Import button to perform the Import
Step 4: Importing
If there are any problems during the import, these are presented, and you will need to either abort, or go back and resolve the conflicts.
