Datastage imports and exports

All types of Infosphere Datastage objects (stored in a repository) can be easily exported into a file or imported into Datastage from a previously created export.
    Main purpose of creating imports and exports are:
  • Projects and jobs backups
  • Maintaining and versioning
  • Moving objects between projects or datastage installations
  • Sharing projects and jobs between developers.
Imports and exports are executed from within the Datastage Client (in previous versions it was Datastage Manager).
To begin the export process, go to the Datastage and QualityStage Client menu and click Export -> Datastage components. Then select the types of objects to export and specify the details of an export file - path, name and extension (dsx or xml).
Keep in mind that the path to the export file is on the client machine, not the server.
