    Export a form definition

    Has anyone come up with a way to export a form definition? It would be nice to be able to create a form in a dev copy, try things, get it all working nicely, and then export it and import into our UAT copy of the site.

    I believe Umbraco Forms actually stores form definitions in files already - helpfully!

    Those files should be in the ~/App_Data/UmbracoForms/Data directory. Copy that up to your UAT environment and your forms should be accessible.

    Just be careful with these files, I'd suggest you only do this as a manual action as if they're included in your deployment, you could lose changes made on the UAT site.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Thanks for the info. That's both good and bad. Good that we can easily copy them up to UAT. Bad that the file names are all GUIDs or something like a GUID. Just have to peek inside each one to make sure you get only the forms and workflows you need.
