Export and Import Smart Materials Business Custom Applications - Version 2020 (10.0) - Hexagon

Smart Materials Web Installation (10.1)

Smart Materials/Smart Reference Data Version

This section describes how to export and import your business custom applications.

  If you use HXGN_JS_CUSTOM to configure data load and copy down in your custom applications, then save the content before the upgrade and paste it into the package afterwards.


  1. Login into Apex Workspace Administration at your source system.

  2. Click Application Builder.

  3. Select the application you want to export and click Export / Import.


  4. Click Next.

  5. Click Export and save the file.


  1. Login into Apex Workspace Administration at your target system.

  2. Click Application Builder.

  3. Click Import.


  4. Select the previously saved export file and click Next.

  5. Click Next on the File Import Confirmation screen.

    The workspace should be parsed automatically if you used a dump import, and if you have built your workspace as described in Set Up a New Workspace for Smart Materials Web.

  6. Select Reuse Application ID ... From Export File if you don’t want to change the IDs at your target system.

    If you change the IDs, you must change the navigation menu entries in Smart Materials Web for custom applications. When you copy our sample application (900), you need to use a number between 901 and 999 as the new application ID. Additionally, you can use any number above 10000.


  7. Click Install Application.

    When done, the summary should show 'Application Installed'.

  8. Click Edit Application and go back to the Smart Materials Web application to test your imported application.
