  3. On The Export page, next to WAR File Name: field, enter a unique name for the WAR file, including the .war file extension.
  4. Select the appropriate resource tag you want to include in the WAR file from the Resource Tag drop-down list.
  5. Select the check box next to Save generated WAR file on Server if you want to save the WAR file on the server.
  6. Click Next.
  7. On The Confirm page, verify the WAR file information and click Finish.
  8. On The page showing that the system update completed successfully, complete the following actions:
    1. Click the document icon next to View Export Report to verify whether the WAR file generated without errors.
    2. Click Download next to Download (.war) file to download to your local computer.
You are now ready to deploy the downloaded WAR file in the new environment.
