Altova FlowForce Server 2020 Advanced Edition

When you export data from FlowForce Server, you can choose whether to include or exclude sensitive data from the exported archive. The examples below explain the differences between the two approaches.

 

Example 1: Exclude sensitive data

Let's assume that you have a job ("AddNumbers") which refers to a credential record that is in the same container ("my.credentials").

ff_export_01

If you choose to export both objects to a file (.zip archive) without selecting the Export sensitive data option, the following happens:

 

1.The job will be exported.

2.The credential record will be exported without the password.

 

If you later import the .zip archive into a FlowForce Server environment where the two objects do not exist, both objects will be created successfully. Note that the password associated with the credential record will be empty.

 

If the objects already exist in the target environment, you can overwrite them or clear the corresponding check box and skip them:

ff_export_02

If you choose to overwrite both records, the following happens:

 

1.The job existing in FlowForce Server will be overwritten by the job from the .zip archive.

2.The credential record existing in FlowForce Server will be overwritten by the one from .zip archive, and the destination password will become empty.

 

If you do not overwrite the credential, the existing credential remains untouched.

 

Example 2: Include sensitive data

Let's assume that you export the same two records as above,  and also select the Export sensitive data option during export. In this case, the following happens:

 

1.The job is exported

2.The credential record is exported and includes the password as well.

 

If you later import the .zip archive into a FlowForce Server environment where the two objects do not exist, both objects will be created successfully. The password associated with the credential record will be the one from the .zip file.

 

If the objects already exist in the target environment, you can overwrite them or clear the corresponding check box and skip them. If you choose to overwrite the records, the following happens:

 

1.The job existing in FlowForce Server will be overwritten by the job from the .zip archive.

2.The credential record existing in FlowForce Server will be overwritten by the one from .zip archive. The destination password will also be overwritten by the one from the .zip archive.

 

If you do not overwrite the credential, the existing credential remains untouched.
