In this tab, projects from backup files can be imported. By clicking the Upload Backup File button, a backup file can be uploaded. After uploading, the projects that are contained in the file are displayed. One or more of these projects can be selected ( Figure 10.31).

An import will never overwrite existing projects or other data therein.

[Important] Important

When trying to import a backup file from a previous Klaros database version, the import is rejected with a corresponding error message. You must first import the backup file into a compatible version of Klaros-Test­management and then update the installation to your current version.

An export from that version is now compatible with your current release.
