Models in QPR Metrics are saved in the QPR Metrics database. Once a model has been exported to file format, then it can be easily handled like any other file, i.e. saved to disk, attached to an e-mail, etc.
Importing a Model
To import a model into QPR Metrics (from file format), do the following:
|1.||From the Application menu, select Manage > Import. The "Select an import file" window appears.|
|2.||Select the model you want to import. Click Open. The Import model window opens.|
|3.||In the Name for the model field, type a descriptive name for the model you want to import.|
|4.||Click OK. The model has been imported once the cursor changes from an hourglass back to normal.|
Note: The name you give to a model you import does not have to be the same as the original model name. Notice also that for importing a model the file must exist.
When you import a model, you will import all the views, too, since they are stored in the exported model. For more information on views see Configuring the Hierarchy Views and Configuring the Dashboards view.
Note: QPR Metrics 2012.2 supports imports for models created with QPR ScoreCard 7.0 or newer.
