Export Reference Data

When you have a complete project set up, with fully defined project data, it is possible to capture either selected categories or all categories of that data, and export it to a single XML file. You can then review the data, and import it to another project or tool so that you do not have to define it all again. The exported data includes all instances of the selected data type in the project; for example, all defined cardinality values, or all Document Style Templates.



Configure > Model > Transfer > Export Reference Data

Select and Export Reference Data


  • You can resize the 'Export Reference Data' dialog; drag the dialog edges to the size you need
  • If there are no instances of a selected data type in the project, the export does not generate any output for that data type in the XML file
  • Currently, Standard Complexity Types cannot be directly edited and are therefore effectively standard for all models; they can be listed using the Predefined Reference Data Tagged Value type ComplexityTypes
