Create studio project file

Hello guys,

I have been playing around with the deployment tools from Ensemble (mostly based on this article , but so far the one thing I still couldn't figure out is how to group files into a single "Studio project file".

By using the deployment tool UI, supposing that I want to add a bunch of custom files to my deployment file (XML), it's practically impossible because I need to add one by one.

So the only way around it is using this idea of grouping files into a "Studio project file" and thereafter adding the "Studio project file" into my final deployment file.

Any clues?

Hi Jan,

Thanks but I want to follow what the deployment tool is advising me to, include everything I need through the management portal export tool. What is the solution in this case then?

Because we know that the export tool has a very poor interface that doesn't allow me to select more than 1 file, hence I need to to stick to creating a "project file" if I want to include a group of custom files for example, but it doesn't seem possible.

I don't really see a way out.

Hi Murillo,

I have repeated the steps that you have described. The export of the components of the production is of just the items that you specify - so the project file, which is a list of pointers, and not the things pointed to by the project file. If you want to create an XML file that contains all of the items pointed to within the project you should export it from Studio. You can do that from the Tools >> Export... menu item, or by right clicking on the Project file in the Workspace and selecting Export.
