Exporting and Importing enables ease-of-deployment of flow logic for a variety of devices and use cases.
Click the list icon ( ≡ ) at the top right of the Flows window.
The Export option offers two choices: Clipboard and Library.
As the name implies, the clipboard option temporarily saves node data to the clipboard. To save node data for a longer term, use the Export to Library option.
Note: When exporting, passwords are not exposed.
When exporting nodes to the clipboard, choose from these three options and click Export to clipboard:
Before exporting nodes, select the nodes and connecting wires within a flow tab. See Select Flow Nodes.
When you export nodes to a library, you are prompted to enter a path and filename for the library. This location is created dynamically and does not need to be a pre-existing directory or file.
If you re-use the path/filename, the previous export will be overwritten.
The Import operation relies on a previous export. Just as with export, the import operation lists two options: Clipboard and Library.
The clipboard option provides access to data temporarily saved to the clipboard. For data saved for a longer term, use the Import from Library option.
2. Paste the contents of the clipboard (CTRL-V) into the dialog and click Import.
Be sure to Save the flow after importing from the clipboard.
This option simply imports the nodes that were exported to a specific library (path/filename).
Be sure to Save the flow after importing from a library.
