Local Linkage - Import and Export

Local Linkage - Import and Export

The Linkage Export/Import feature allows you to save Local Linkage actions which can then be imported and used on other controllers (or completely different Doors.NET systems), potentially saving a lot of system programming time.


Note: ALL the procedures which have been defined for a controller will be included in the exported file. It is not possible to Export just one procedure from a list of several. If you want to create a library of different Local Linkage actions they will need to be created, exported, then deleted from the list, one-at-a-time.

  1. To Export Local Linkage procedures, or a single procedure, highlight a controller from the drop down list which already has a procedure, or procedures defined for it, then click the Export button.


Local Linkage Import and Export Step 1

  1. A dialog save box will appear and the default location will be the 'Exported Linkages' sub-folder within the Doors.NET directory. The file type will also be set to the appropriate linkage file file type (*.kerilnk).
  2. Change the default filename to something more meaningful, then click save.


Local Linkage Import Export Step 2


  1. A multitude of Local Linkage procedures can then be created and added to this folder for later use.
  2. To Import the same linkage procedure to a different controller select another controller of the same type from the Controllers drop-down list then click the Import button.
  3. The same dialog box will appear with the 'ExportedLinkages' folder as pre-selected. If you have linkage actions saved from a different installation it is best to place them into this sub-folder so they can be easily located and selected.
  4. Simply click the linkage action to import then click the Open button.
