Purpose: Read existing iManager definitions (Modules, Roles, Tasks, Books) from eDirectory and export them to an installable XML file.

iMgrExport allows you to selectively export category/role/task/book declarations from an eDirectory tree with an existing iManager installation.

iMgrExport will thereby provide a good starting base for developers who create their own custom iManager modules.

Check for details on adapting the resulting XML file to your needs.


  • Select the container that contains your iManager collection(s) of tasks.
    iMgrExport will scan all subcontainers of the selected entry
  • iMgrExport will show all modules, roles, tasks, books
    Mark the ones that you want to export into an XML file.
    You may use a filter to automatically mark entries that match a given string
  • Save the resulting XML file.
    You may modify the file according to your needs.
  • To use the tasks on a different server, do not forget to copy the JSP files
    that are referenced in the “<merge-template>” tags
  • iMgrExport will NOT export book pages, since these are not installed into eDirectory.
    To export book pages, copy the page definitions (nps\portal\modules\[your module]\plugins)
    and the respective page JSPs (nps\portal\modules\[your module]\skins\…)
