Export applications to create a deployment archive that can be used to transport applications between SAP Mobile Servers.


Before beginning, review import requirements and best practices.


  1. In the left navigation pane of SAP Control Center, select Applications.
  2. In the right navigation pane, click the Applications tab.
  3. Select the box adjacent to the application and click Export.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Click Finish.
  6. Select the file system target for the exported contents and click Save.
    Note Ensure that you do not hide the file type extension when you name the export archive; otherwise, the *.zip extension becomes invisible, which adversely affects the outcome of the export process.
    A status message indicates the success or failure of the export transaction. If the transaction succeeds, a ZIP file is created in the location you specified. You can then import this file on another SAP Mobile Server.

Next Steps

Deliver the file to the appropriate person, or deploy or transport the exported application to the appropriate server.
