Introduction:
How to use Modelgateway/MGW to export all info related to Devices and interfaces - here especially the Module model-types.

The MGW export and import processing is controlled by configuration file (default ./SS-Tools/.modelinggatewayresource.xml) - covering control flags as follows:
<ExportConfiguration
        export_devices           = "true"
        export_containers        = "true"
        export_port_attributes   = "true"
        export_links             = "true"
        export_topology_layout   = "true"
        export_annotation        = "true"
        export_WA_Link_models    = "true"
        export_spectrum_settings = "true"
        export_user_models       = "true"
        export_service_modeling  = "true"
        export_schedules         = "true"
        export_global_collections = "true"
        export_discovery_configs = "true"
        export_from_primary_ss_only = "false"
        export_policy_manager = "true"
/>


The configuration does not allow to reconfigure for Module model-type export.
