Import a Screen that has previously been exported.

Import a ProcessMaker Screen

Import a Screen that has been exported from the same ProcessMaker version. The imported Screen contains the configured controls from the exported Screen. Exported Screens have the .json file extension. The imported Screen can then be referenced in Processes.

Your user account or group membership must have the following permissions to import a Screen unless your user account has the Make this user a Super Admin setting selected:

  • Screens: Import Screens

  • Screens: View Screens

See the Screens permissions or ask your Administrator for assistance.

Follow these steps to import a Screen:

  1. View your Screens. The Screens page displays.

  2. Click the Import button. The Import Screen displays.

  3. Click Browse to locate the Screen to import. Screens have the .json file extension.

  4. Click Import. The Import Screen screen displays to indicate that the Screen imported correctly.

  5. Click List Screens. The Screens page displays the imported Screen with the same name as the original Screen except with a number "2" suffix.

If the original Screen cannot import successfully, the following message displays: Unable to import the screen. Ensure the following:

  • The .json file you tried to import is a Screen and not a Process. An exported Process also uses the .json file extension.

  • The exported Screen was exported from the same ProcessMaker version.
