    Importing a Primo Configuration

    The instructions for importing are the same for all deployment levels: Local, Direct, or Multi-tenant (without server access).
    If a configuration export was done for a specific institution, any installation-level configurations in use were also included in the export. For example, if a pipe uses normalization rules that belong to the installation level, they were included in the export. During the import, however, only new installation-level configuration are added; no existing configurations are replaced.
    Use an institution-level export configuration if you are importing a configuration is for a specific institution.
    This tool is limited to the SuperAdmin and Admin roles.
    To export/import the Primo full configuration (not just the specific institution), follow the instructions in Exporting/Importing the Full Configuration.
