Using the Export and Import bundles feature, you can copy bundles from one zone to another. This feature helps you to export and import bundles from a test environment to a production environment.
Use Case: This feature is useful in a scenario where you want to deploy an application to multiple devices using the bundle feature, and prior to publishing the bundle, you want to test it to ensure that there are no glitches during deployment.
The bundle export and import feature enables you to create a bundle in a test zone and test the functionality of the bundle. After you have tested the bundle, you can export the bundle as a ZIP file to your local drive using the Export feature that is available in ZENworks Control Center (ZCC). The same ZIP file can then be imported to the production zone by using the Import feature.
This feature enables you to export bundles to the local drive. If you export bundles using the ZMAN command prompt, only the XML files are exported. However, when you export bundles using this feature the metadata files, icons, settings and XML files are also exported.
