Importing and Exporting Server Component Definitions

The Cantara Integration Platform supports two server configuration types: file-based and database. You can use the Import/Export feature to switch between the two configurations as your business needs change. For example, you can use this feature if you want to upgrade from a file-based configuration to one that uses a database. You can also use this functionality to migrate component definitions between Cantara Access Servers.
