Import and Export

Description

 

To simplify deployment for multiple users, it is possible to import and export data sources, entries, and even the application's configuration. Configure the application once, with data sources, entries, and options. Export any of these configurations, then import them in another Remote Desktop Manager instance.

 

Instead of exporting/importing data sources and options separately, it is possible to create a custom installer. Our custom installer service replicates the configuration of a Remote Desktop Manager instance. W

 

Data Sources

Only the data source configuration is exported. The resulting .rdd file does not contain the database content. It contains only the configuration used to connect to the database. From File - Data Sources, click on the Export Data Source Configuration... button, then save the .rdd file on your computer.

A locked data source can be exported and imported, but the content will be locked unless a password is entered when the data source is selected. See Lock Data Source for more information.

 

Entries

Entries configuration can be exported to save the time of creating the same set of entries for multiple users. There are many ways of exporting entries. The only formats allowed to import entries previously exported from Remote Desktop Manager are .rdm, and .xml.
