Importing a universe - SAP BO

You can import one or more universes stored in a universe folder in the repository. You can only import a universe that has already been exported to the repository.

When you import a universe, the CMS checks the universe version on the repository file system. If the version is identical, the universe is made available to Designer. If the universe version on the repository file system is more recent than the CMS version, a message box appears asking if you want to replace the universe in the folder. If you answer Yes, then the universe on the repository file system is replaced by the version in the CMS.
