This guide will show you how to export a model from one Kiuwan account and import it into another account. 



Table of Contents

There are various reasons why you would need to export and import a Kiuwan Model. For example, you may have two different Kiuwan accounts and need the same model in both, or you may have migrated to Kiuwan On-Premises from a Saas account. 

Exporting your model

  1. Go to Model Management from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner. 
  2. Select the model you want to export on the left (in this example: My Model).

  7. A dialog window will appear where you can upload the exported model files.

    Exported rules files follow this pattern:
    where <technology> is any of the technologies supported by Kiuwan (Java, JSP, C#, etc)

    These steps must be done for every technology file.

    Currently, there's not an option to upload more than one file at a time. Therefore, the next steps must be repeated for every technology.

    Be sure to select the en directory when uploading the files.

  8. Once the technology file is uploaded, select the target model (the one that was created in step 3).
