Importing a Sandbox
si importsandbox
It is possible to import an existing Sandbox and register it as a new Sandbox on the Windchill RV&S client.
To import a Sandbox, the project identified by the Sandbox must exist on the Windchill RV&S server. However, if the Sandbox being imported is a build Sandbox, the project does not need to be currently registered as visible on that server.
Two types of sandboxes can be imported:
Sandboxes that have a file extension of .pj. Those are Sandboxes that were created using Integrity 10.7 or earlier, but not opened in 10.8 or later.
Sandbox files with the extension .pjx that were exported using the command Sandbox > Export.
To import a Sandbox in the GUI
Select Sandbox > Import, and then browse to the Sandbox file on your local drive.
The following options are available from the Import Sandbox window:
Target Sandbox Directory specifies the location where the Sandbox will be located after it is imported. This option is only relevant when specifying a .pjx file for import.
Files to Include in the Import specifies the files to include when importing the Sandbox. This option is only relevant when specifying a .pjx file for import.
None specifies not to import working files in the Sandbox import operation. Working files can be obtained after import by resynchronzing the Sandbox.
Sandbox Members Only specifies to only include working files that correspond to members. Note that former members and deferred operations are also included.
All Files specifies to import all working files in the Sandbox. Note that non-member files are not added as members to the project, but the files are copied to the corresponding Sandbox directory.
Overwrite an Existing File in the Sandbox Directory specifies whether or not to overwrite an existing file in the target Sandbox directory. This option is only relevant when specifying a .pjx file for import.
View Sandbox After Import specifies whether or not to open the Sandbox view after this Sandbox is imported and registered on the client.
