Exporting and Importing Attribute Mappings

If necessary you can export attribute mappings to an ASCII file format, manually edit them, then import them back into ProjectWise. You can either export all attribute mappings from the Attribute Exchange Rules node, or you can export each application's mappings individually. This section documents how to export all attribute mappings. The process is essentially the same for exporting mappings individually, but if you need details, see the respective application's section in this attribute exchange documentation.

To Export All Attribute Mappings from the Attribute Exchange Rules Node

  1. Right-click the Attribute Exchange Rules node.
  2. Select Export Mapping.
  3. In the Save As dialog, select an export location and click Save.

To Import Any Attribute Mapping File

  1. Right-click the Attribute Exchange Rules node and select Import Mappings.

    The Import Mappings warning window opens. This window states that the import will delete all existing classes, attributes and bindings for mappings that exist in the import file. Are you sure you want to continue?

  2. Click Yes.
  3. In the Open dialog, select the required file (.INI) and click Open.

    The mapping is imported.
