Exporting Assets

Export assets from one database to another by using the Asset Export wizard.
Note: Never modify an exported file. Doing so could potentially corrupt your Silk Test Workbench database upon import of the file. If an export occurs while an asset is being edited, the edited asset is not exported. Therefore, make sure to complete and save any edits to an asset before performing an export.
  1. Choose File > Export Assets. The Silk Test Workbench Asset Export Wizard opens.

    To bypass the Welcome page on subsequent uses of the wizard and all other Silk Test Workbench wizards, check the check box at the bottom of the page. Checking this check box updates the Show Wizard Welcome Screens option in General options.

    You can resize the wizard by dragging the lower-right corner of any page to the desired height and width.
  2. Click Next. The What to Export page opens.
  3. To export all assets, perform the following steps:
    1. Click Export all assets.
    2. Uncheck the Export only the latest version of each asset check box to export every version of each asset, or check the check box to include only the latest version in the export.
  4. To export specific assets, perform the following steps:
    1. Click Export only the assets I select.
    2. To export specific versions for each asset, check the Show all versions of each asset check box.
      Note: If you choose to export more than one version of an asset, note that the version information may change on import, depending on the versions that you select. For example, if you choose to export version 1 and version 5 of an asset, during the import the versions numbers are updated to version 1 and version 2.
    3. Check the Export assets associated with Visual tests and .NET Scripts check box to export every associated assets, including all object maps from all referenced projects.
    4. Click Next. The Items to Export page opens.
    5. In the left pane, expand the folders that contain the items that you want to export and check the check boxes for the assets that you want to export. A blue check mark indicates that the item selected and all its subitems are selected for export. A gray check mark indicates that only a partial selection of subitems has occurred.
  5. Click Next. The Where to store the data page opens.
  6. Locate or create the ZIP file to which you want to export the assets. All exported assets are bundled into the specified file.
  7. Click Next. The Start Exporting Assets page opens. This page provides a summary of the assets for export.
  8. Review the summary and then click Next to begin the export. The Export Progress window displays a progress bar that shows the level of completion. The Export Wizard Complete page opens after the export finishes.
