We will be migrating to App Portal 2015 R2 soon.

In our existing single instance of App Portal 2013.3, we have a number of complicated approval workflows, workflow groups, catalog item images and descriptions, style config, and notification settings.

The first instance of App Portal 2015 R2 that we will be deploying will be one that is segregated (i.e. Not the primary instance), but a large portion of the items mentioned above will need to be built out in this new instance of 2015 R2.

Does there exist a feasible way to export approval workflows, workflow groups, catalog item images and descriptions, style config, and notification settings from one instance of App Portal and import into another instance, running either the same or newer version of App Portal?

App Portal 2013.3 => Export Data => Import Data => App Portal 2015R2 or similar.

This would greatly reduce the manual buildout time of the new instance.

Thoughts/Ideas?

App Portal supports upgrade from 2013 to 2015 R2, however, there are no pre-built tools available to export a configuration from one system to another (especially across versions). You could follow the instructions here: http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/appportal2015r2sp4ig/default.htm#helplibrary/AP_MoveServer.htm to move the server. This would rely on both servers being the same version. What is the driver for building a new server?
