Migrating JAMS Objects

Exporting and Importing JAMS Objects

Many Definitions in JAMS may be exported or imported using JAMS PowerShell cmdlets, or from within the JAMS Client. These Definitions include:


To Export any existing Definition(s) from JAMS, simply select one or more objects from the relevant view in the GUI, then use the Export button on the Control Bar to open the Save as XML dialog. Give the XML Export a Name, set a location, and save the export.


Using the Copy To Function

The Copy To function allows users to rename and copy selected JAMS objects to another local or remote location. This feature is most often used when mirroring the Jobs within a folder on the same server, or to promote Jobs from one server to another. E.g. From Development to QA.

Copy one or more Objects to another location

  1. Open the Definitions Shortcut
  2. Select the Job(s) or Variable(s) to Copy.
    NOTE: Users may select multiple objects by using CTRL+A to select all, CTRL+Left-Click to select multiple non-contiguous objects, or SHIFT+Left-Click to select contiguous objects.
  3. Right-Click the selected object(s), then select Copy To... from the dropdown menu.
  4. The Copy To dialog will open. Define the Destination Server, Folder, and object Name.
    NOTE: When copying multiple Jobs, the copies will be created using the Source Job Names.
  5. When Finished, click OK to start the copy function. Depending on the size of the copy, a progress dialog may appear.
