Import and Export Data Source

To simplify deployment for multiple users, it is possible to export and import data source configurations. The generated .rdd file contains all the information to recreate the configuration. Please note that the .rdd file does not include the database content. Only the configuration is exported. Use the entry's Export functionality to backup or copy the database's content.

Use File – Data Sources to access the import or export functionality.

Whether or not users can Read/Write in Offline mode is first decided at the data source's Caching mode level. This cannot be changed remotely. If you wish to prevent or allow remote users the Read/Write offline feature, you should do so before exporting your data source.

A locked data source can be exported and imported, but the content will be locked unless a password is entered when the data source is selected. See Lock Data Source for more information.
