Importing a workload application template

How to import a workload application template using the Dynamic Workload Console.

Before you begin

Ensure you have created a workload application template as described in Creating a workload application template or Exporting a job stream definition as a workload application template.

About this task

You can import a workload application template that represents an efficient workload process or a standardized solution into a target environment to replicate all of the required objects to run the workload in the new environment.

Start of changeYou can also decide whether or not to maintain a tie to the workload application which binds the objects to the workload application, or to import the objects eliminating any ties to the workload application. Eliminating ties to the workload application allows you to manage objects with more flexibility.End of change

To import a workload application template, perform the following procedure:


  1. From the navigation toolbar, click Administration > Workload Design > Import Workload Application
  2. Specify the name of a distributed engine
  3. Browse to the workload application template.
  4. Click Upload.
  5. Start of changeIn the section Import Options, select Import only the contents of the workload application template, if you want to import only the objects contained in the template, without any ties to the workload application. This allows you to work freely with the objects contained in the template. (This import is supported only when connected to an engine with version or later) End of change
  6. You now need to edit the names of the objects as they are defined in the target environment (for example, the names of the workstations on which the job streams run). In the left column, under the Original Workload heading, you can find the original objects, such as workstations, jobs, and job streams. In the fields in the right column, you can enter the names to be assigned to the objects in the target environment.
  7. Click Import.


The workload application template is now imported and ready for use in your target environment.
