ImportToPath command (Import/Export tool)

Import a project item or test case to a TestArchitect project location identified by its TA path.

The Import/Export tool is not available in the TestArchitect packages for the Linux and macOS operating systems.


java -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -jar TAImportExportTool.jar --ImportToPath [--server<value>] [--port<value>] --uid<value> 
--pwd<value> --repoName<value> --projectName<value> --sourceFile<value> --destinationFolder<value> 
[--overwrite<true|false>] [--includePictureChecks<yes|no>]
  • -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

    Encoding type of the command

  • TAImportExportTool.jar

    An executable .jar file used to invoke the Import/Export tool.

    The file can be found at TA_INSTALL_DIR\binclient.

  • –ImportToPath

    Invoke the import items function.

  • –server <value>

    (Optional, default = localhost) Full hostname or IP address of the repository server hosting the repository into which the item is to be imported.

    If this argument is not defined, localhost is used as the default.

  • –port <value>

    (Optional, default = 53400) Port number of the repository server.

    • If this argument is set to 0 or not defined, the default port number 53400 is used.
    • If port number of the source repository server has been changed from its TestArchitect default of 53400, ensure that the correct port number is specified.
  • –uid <value>

    User name with which to log in to repository.

    If the user namecontains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks.

  • –pwd <value>

    Password for the given user name.

  • –repoName <value>

    Name of the target repository.

    If the repository namecontains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks..

  • –projectName <value>

    Name of the target TestArchitect project.

    If the project namecontains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks.

  • –sourceFile <value>

    Path to file that is to be imported.

    • Network paths are also supported.
    • If the pathcontains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks.
  • –destinationFolder <value>

    Location (TA path) of the project item root node (Tests, Data, etc.) or folder into which the item is to be imported.

    Value must start with a forward slash ( / ), and provide a full (non-case sensitive) TA path, starting with the root project item node (e.g., Tests, Data, etc.)

    For example: /Tests/Action-based Testing Basics/Data Driven Tests

    • The specified root node must match the type of project item being imported. (e.g., Data for data sets)
    • In the case of importing test cases, the path must end with the name of an existing test module.
    • In all but the case of importing test cases, a minimum allowable path consists of forward slash followed by the applicable root project item node.
    • If the destination path does not exist, it is generated automatically, with the exception of importation of test cases.
  • –overwrite <true|false>

    (Optional, default = false) Specify whether the existing project item or test case, if any, should be overwritten.

    If this parameter is not specified, or its value is empty, its value defaults to false.

  • –includePictureChecks <yes|no>

    (Optional, default = yes; applicable only to import of test module) Specifies whether the regular picture checks belonging to the source test module are to be included.

    • This parameter is only applicable for test modules. If the target item is not a test module, this parameter, if declared, is simply ignored.
    • Only a .zip file containing an exported test module can include that test module’s picture checks. Hence a value of yes for this parameter is only effectual when the -sourceFile parameter specifies a .zip file.

Example: Importing test modules including regular picture checks
