Important

If you specified a custom password to encrypt the data in the export process, you will need to provide the same password in the import process.

If the selected file contains environments that already exist, you can decide if you want to replace them or not.

Important

If the import file contains a cloud cluster, this cluster is created in pending status. You will need to recreate the cloud cluster in the Managing Clusters screen after the import process.
