Import a Framework

The following steps walk an IsAdmin-type user through importing a framework in Designer. This process imports an XML file of an Architex framework and its viewpoints, plus associated nodes and unlocked reports, into the data service. The process can be followed in a data service where the framework does not exist, or it exists but nodes or elements have been added to it.

1. In either the Framework Builder pane or the Node Editor pane, click the Framework Manager button in the Ribbon Bar.
2. The Framework Manager window pops up.
3. Click the Import button. In the file explorer window, find your XML file and click Open.
4. The new and modified framework, viewpoints, nodes, and elements are displayed in the top half of the Content Pane portion of the Framework Manager window. Click the triangle icon to expand or collapse the menu; use the Framework and Nodes tabs to change the displayed menu.
5. In the lower half of the Content Pane, the Log tab is used to select the items to merge. Click the triangle icon to expand or collapse the menu.
6. In the Ribbon Bar, click the Merge All or Merge Selected Items to begin the import process. A busy indicator is displayed during the process. Click the X icon (in the upper right-hand corner) to close the window.
