Migrate Form Spaces

   Journey Manager (JM) Previously known as Transact Manager (TM). |   System Manager / DevOps |  v5.1 & Higher This feature is related to v5.1 and higher.

Manager provides a mechanism to migrate form spaces from one environment to another. This allows you to develop and test form spaces in different environments before deploying them into production.

Migrating a form space doesn’t migrate forms associated with it. It does, however, migrate the following resources:

  • Pages
  • Resources
  • Properties

To migrate one or several form spaces, follow the process below:

  1. Export form spaces.
  2. Import form spaces to another Manager environment.

Manager allows you to migrate form spaces as ZIP or WAR archive files. The main difference between ZIP and WAR files is that a ZIP archive contains only the form’s pages related configuration, whilst a WAR archive contains the whole form space configuration. This is illustrated below.

A ZIP archive has:


A WAR archive has:

account-pending.htm            login.htm
border-dummy-content.htm       logout.htm
border-template.htm            META-INF/
card-cvv-info.htm              not-authorized.htm
card-payment.htm               not-supported.htm
click/                         off-line.htm
confirmation.htm               receipt-challenge.htm
create-account.htm             redirect.jsp
error.htm                      resources/
error-500.jsp                  save-challenge.htm
forgotten-password.htm         secure/
form.htm                       server-busy.htm
form-attachments.htm           session-expired.htm
form-expired.htm               submission-cancelled.htm
form-not-found.htm             submission-email-verification.htm
hosted-card-payment.htm        submission-errors.htm
hosted-payment.htm             submission-failed.htm
incompatible-adobe-reader.htm  submission-saved.htm
index.htm                      terms-and-conditions.htm
job-challenge.htm              WEB-INF/
job-tasks.htm                  wet-signature.htm

You can use the same process to perform a form space rollback.
