Export project

Using the context menu of a project or folder, you can export all items in the selected project or folder as an Excel file. Similarly, you can use the context menu of one or more selected items to export them.

The result of the export is always a zip file containing an Excel file with detailed information about the selected items, separate folders for all items with their attachments and Word files with rich text, e.g. descriptions or test steps. In the Excel file, the different types of items are stored in separate worksheets. The items are stored in the rows, with all the information from their fields in the corresponding columns. For description fields (rich text fields), Excel displays only plain text without formatting (as this is not supported by Excel). However, there is always a link to the formatted text, including images, as a Word file in a separate folder. For this link to work, the zip file must be unzipped before opening the Excel file. When the test scenarios are exported, the corresponding test cases are also automatically exported if the user has read permission for these test cases.

The zip file can then be imported back into aqua. It is recommended to use the same project configuration to avoid incompatibilities.
