How To Export NP 16 Templates and Import to NPrinting 17+ Environment
You have decided to migrate to NPrinting 17+ Platform from NPrinting 16 and you want to use your existing NP 16 templates rather than rebuilding everything.
You must be running QlikView NPrinting 16 SR 3 or higher to leverage the project export tool found in the NP template editor.
Entity Reports cannot be migrated to NPrinting 17+ platform at this time. There is no 'Edit Template' button/report editor for Entity Reports in NP 18. Thus the entity reports cannot be imported and will need to be manually recreated
You can only import NP 16 report templates and related report objects only
You must generate the same source application in both NP 16 and NPrinting 17+. For example, you must generate the SalesDemo.qvw in NPrinting 17+ if that is the QVW that was used to build the report on the NP 16 platform.
at this time it is not possible to migrate schedules, jobs, tasks, filters or any other items etc. These items must be recreated in NPrinting 17+ versions
It is only possible to migrate reports and their respective report templates at this time.
A comprehensive tool for importing additional NP 16 items is expected for release later in 2019
Link fields created in NPrinting and QV bookmarks used as NPrinting filters cannot be migrated to NPrinting 17+ platform as these features will not be available on that platform.
