From the list of Uploaded Import Modules, click on the one that you would like to import. You can also use the Actions button.
In this guide we will use an Import Module with one Integration, since this is the top level object in the Repository Model and all related child objects will also be included in the import by default.
The option Show imported import modules, shows previously imported import modules in list when checked
Import modules that have NOT been previously imported are listed by default (keeps the list clean by default)
The option Include deleted import modules, includes deleted import modules in the list when checked
In the tree, select items to be Imported and click on the Next button
In the Affected item(s) step, Nodinite compares the current content in the instance with the selected items to be imported. If there is a conflict, you will be given the chance to adjust. The right side is the net end result.
Example of a conflicting change
Once you are done merging the result, click on the Start Import button to perform the Import
This step is displayed during the import operation. If there are any problems during the import, these will be displayed and you will need to either abort, or go back and resolve the obstructing conflicts.
Example of a failed import operation
