Exporting Search Configuration Files

Administrators can export a copy of search configuration files from the CMS to their local system. The export downloads as a SearchSource.config file.

Administrators may use search configuration exports for the following reasons:

  • Use the file to import configuration settings in another CMS instance.
  • Store the configuration settings in a back-up SearchSource.config file.

To export an ISS configuration file:
  1. Navigate to Administration > InSite Search Configuration.
  2. Click Export in the Actions menu.
    The Select Target(s) dialog displays.
  3. Select a publishing target.

    Select Target(s) Dialog

  4. Click Select.
    Your browser downloads the search configuration settings as a SearchSource.config file.
