Introduction:

Process Automation includes an Export feature for items in the library, which in large environments could be larger than the 250mb limit when Importing through the GUI.

 

Question:

Why does Process Automation allow the Library to export a larger than 250MB size file, and is there a way to import this content?

 

Answer:

Process Automation cannot determine the total size of the export of the multitude of processes in the library folders.   

In environments with a large number of Process definitions, generally hundreds of processes, though this can vary depending on the size of the individual processes, it is a good idea to export the content in smaller blocks, for example one or two folders at a time.

 

Where this isnt possible or convenient, or if you have simply exported a larger than 250mb file, the REST API can be used to import larger content packages.
