How do I copy Repository Connections info from one laptop to another ?

Steve Woodbridge (1352326) | asked Dec 23 '15, 8:35 p.m.
I have RTC 6.0 on both my old laptop and new laptop. I would prefer to be able to use the Repository connection documents - along with all the project areas I have added to the workspace. Is there a way of doing that ?

How about copying both folders - Eclipse and Workspace - across?

Yes, you can zip the Eclipse workspace or copy it otherwise to a different machine and you can then open the workspace on the new computer and will have all metadata you want. I have done this a couple of times already.

Eclipse only stores this data in the workspace metadata. You can, but don't have to copy the Eclipse client. I would suggest to rather install a fresh version on the new machine and use the new Eclipse client with the copied Eclipse workspace.

I also need such advice.  How do I move repository connection documents (and any other 'status' information) to the new laptop?

Pedro Vera commented Sep 13 '16, 12:33 p.m.

RTC has an export capability:  File -> Export -> System Definitions -> System Definition IDs and it allows me to pick from a list of Repository Connections and to select various attributes to export...   but when I do an import on the new laptop, the process first makes pick from a list of Repository Connections to import to...  but my list of connections is empty so I cannot proceed with the import.
