Import Mode Selection

The Import Mode Selection panel enables you to choose between the standard import mechanism and the newer version-neutral import mechanism, when you want to import component templates along with their referenced objects.

For the import of component templates (along with their referenced objects), you can choose between the following options:

Import (Version-neutral)

Use the newer version-neutral import mechanism to import component templates along with their payloads and referenced objects.
This mechanism is version-neutral, allowing you to export component templates from one BMC Server Automation version 8.x system and import them to any other BMC Server Automation system of the same version or of any later version. In addition, this new mechanism allows you to preserve any objects that already exist on the target system. The version-neutral import process involves the use of an easily readable, XML-based content format file.
Select this option if you want to import component templates for which you already created a zipped export package during a version-neutral export process or manually outside of the BMC BladeLogic environment.

Import (Standard)

Use the standard import mechanism that has existed in BladeLogic since before version 8.0.
Select this option if you want to import BMC BladeLogic objects that you previously exported using the standard export mechanism.
