You can import a previously exported model into the local repository. A model can only be imported into a development component with the same name as the development component from which it was exported. When you import a model, you also import any nested or referenced models that were exported with the model. You can choose whether you want to open the model after you import it.
A development component exists with the same name as the development component from which the model was exported.
1. Choose Model ® Import. The Import dialog box is displayed.
2. To locate the model to import, click the Browse button next to the File name field. The Choose file dialog box is displayed.
3. Use the Look in dropdown list to navigate to the model that you want to import and click Open.
The File name field displays the name and path of the file you selected.
4. To open the model in Visual Composer after importing it, select the Open imported model checkbox.
5. Click Import.
The model is imported to the development component with the same name as the development component from which the model was exported. Any nested or referenced models are also imported.
If you chose to open the top-level model after the import process is complete, it is opened in Visual Composer.
Visual Composer has no way of validating that imported models were not modified outside of Visual Composer. To enable such validation, you need to use an external digital signature mechanism.
