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.



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



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.
