UI actions for exporting and importing customizations in an XML file

The system allows administrators to directly export and import customizations as XML files.

The system provide these UI actions to export and import XML files:
  • Export to XML on the table sys_update_set
  • Export to XML on the table sys_remote_update_set
  • Import Update Set from XML on the table sys_remote_update_set

The Export to XML UI action on sys_update_set calls a processor called UnloadRetrievedUpdateSet, which transforms a local Update Set into a retrieved Update Set, exports the retrieved Update Set with its related list, and then deletes the temporary Update Set if necessary.

Both Export to XML UI actions depend on the ExportWithRelatedLists Script Include, which exports a record and manually defined related lists to a single XML file.
