and Importing Form Definitions

Form definitions can be exported as a single file from an AsdeqForms Server. This is useful when transferring a form definition between Development/UAT to a Production environment.

The form definitions are exported as an .afdz file - AsdeqForms Definition Zip containing the main form resources such as the Schema, Javascript and CSS files.

To export a form definition file (.afdz):

  1. go to the Form Management page click on a form to view its properties and select the Basics tab.
  2. At the bottom right of the page there is a link Export to File that can be used to export the current published versioned of the form.

This will download the form definition file to your local browser.

The rules for updating an existing form are more complicated than created a new form.

    • The form definition XML and script will be extracted and used to replace this form's XML definition and script.
    • A new draft version of this form will be created, replacing any existing draft. The published version will not be affected.
    • It is recommended to backup the existing form by download the .afdz incase of any issues.
