Exporting a flow

You can export a flow, to share it with others in your team. You can also export a flow between your tenants.

Required: The flow needs to be published, before you can export it.

  1. Click LOG IN to login to the Boomi Flow Drawing Tool.
  2. Under Tools in sidebar, select Import & Export.
  3. Click Select a Flow.

    This lists all the flows in your tenant.
  4. Select the flow you want to export. (Example: IA)
  5. Click Download.

    This downloads a JSON file, that includes all dependencies used by the flow and metadata. This file can be imported into a tenant.
Boomi Flow Ninja: When a flow is imported, the services used in the flow are also imported. We recommend you update the services after importing the flow; this will update the types, so the service can be used in subsequent flows. If the service is not updated, types not in use by the imported flow would not be recognized by the service.

Check out the glossary for a definition of terms and key concepts that appear in the Boomi Flow website, Drawing Tool, technical documentation, blogs, and marketing communications.
