Exporting/importing models

Model Manager provides a feature for exporting and importing models across different repositories in Alfresco.

You can export and import only those models which are created using the Model Manager.

Exporting a model

Model Manager allows you to export layouts, custom types, aspects, and their associated properties for use in other repositories within Alfresco.

To export a model, follow the steps below:
  1. Click Admin Tools, and then click Model Manager.

    The Model Manager page is displayed.

    This will save the model locally on your computer as a ZIP package.

Importing a model

You can import a model in Model Manager only as a ZIP package.
Note: You can't import models with the same name as the existing models in Model Manager. Model names must be unique.
To import a model, follow the steps below:
