Generation of Backup File During Import

During import, you can create a backup.xml file of resources as they existed before import. You can overwrite existing data without fear of losing the data permanently.

Using the backup file, you can import the old data back into Sterling B2B Integrator if needed.

The backup data is generated as follows:
  • For any resource objects you import that have a pre-existing copy, the backup file preserves a copy of the data as it existed prior to the import procedure. For example, if you import three updated copies of existing envelopes, the file will contain a record of those three envelopes before the update.
  • No backup data is generated for any new resources you import.
  • The file is named backup.xml by default. You can change the name of the backup file when you download it.
