If you have an existing document library structure in a system such as ARIS or SAP Solution Manager, you can import this structure into a uPerform document library via an XML file to avoid losing or having to recreate the document library structure. You can simply import the structure to uPerform and begin populating your project. If you are working with double-byte characters, the file should be in UTF-8 double-byte format.
To import a library structure, your target project must have an empty recycle bin and an empty document library. A project or system administrator can import a structure.
Importing a Document Library Structure
- Create or open a blank project.
- Click Document Library.
- On the left pane, click Import Document Library.
This option is disabled if the library contains content. Ensure the library is empty and that any content related to the library is deleted from the recycle bin.
- Complete the following fields:
Source XML file
Click Browse ... and locate the XML file containing the document library structure you want to import.
Document Library Structure Root XPath
Specify an XPath query representing the root(s) of the Document Library structure.
Document Library Folder XPath
Specify an XPath query representing a Document Library folder. This is only searched from beneath the Document Library Structure Root XPath.
Folder Name XPath
Specify an XPath query representing the name of a Document Library folder. This is expected to be an attribute or sub-element of a node found by the Document Library Folder XPath.
Folder Description XPath
(Optional) Specify an XPath query representing the description of a Document Library Folder. This is expected to be an attribute or sub-element of a node found by the Document Library Folder XPath.
- Click Save.
- Click OK when the import is complete.
