Import/Export a Process

WinAutomation stores all Processes in a database. Therefore, there are no obvious Process files to copy or move. To copy a Process onto another computer that has WinAutomation installed, export the Process - this will create a file with the extension .waj.

This file may be moved to another computer with WinAutomation and then imported into its database. Now the new computer will also have a copy of the Process. This is done through the Import and Export Process options in the Processes tab.

Import a Process:

To import a Process within your WinAutomation Console, launch the WinAutomation Console, and select the "Import Process" option from the Create sub-menu group in the Processes tab. Having done so, a dialog will appear and prompt you to select the Process's file (*.waj) to import.

Once the file has been selected and you have press the "Open" button the dialog window will close and within the WinAutomation Console, in the Processes panel you shall see the Process you selected to import.

Export Process:

To export a Process, locate the Process you wish to export and from the Processes List pane and select the "Export Process" option in the Create menu group. Having done so, a dialog will appear and prompt you to select the folder where the Process should be exported to.

Once the folder has been selected and you press the "OK" button in the dialog, the dialog window will close and within the folder you selected a new file will be created named after the Process's name and with a *.waj extension.

In case the Process contains Actions with Passwords (e.g. Connect to Ancora), a password will be requested to encrypt the aforementioned passwords and enhance security of the exported file. This password is required the first time that the imported Process is executed, and every time that it is edited.
