Export project

You can export projects from a Test Manager instance to another (regardless of the delivery option) to standardize operations through Test Manager. Use this feature to:

  • Transfer entire testing projects to different tenants or instances of Test Manager
  • Create backup copies of any of your projects.

How it works

Exporting a project generates a TMH file that can be then imported in another Test Manager instance. This includes objects such as requirements, test cases, test sets, labels, custom fields, attachments, and automation information. The export process is done asynchronously, notifying when the export process is finished.
Note: Users with a valid Test Manager license can export projects. For more information, see User and Group Access Management.


The export TMH file contains:

Exported objectsDetails
Test objectsWhen you export a project, you can choose the export TMH file to contain one or all of the following:
  • Requirements
  • Test Cases
  • Test Sets
  • Object labels
  • Attachments
  • Custom field definitions (only the values)
  • Automation information for Test Cases
Assignments between objects
  • Assignments between Requirements and Test Cases
  • Assignments between Test Cases and Test Sets
  • Assignments between test objects and labels
Project information
  • Name
  • Prefix
  • Description


To make sure that the export TMH file downloads succesfully, set the buffer response setting in your API Management Gateway as false:
  1. Access your API Management Gateway system.
  2. Locate the API endpoints that finish with /download. You want to set the buffer response to false only for API endpoints that have download as the API response.
  3. Check out the official documentation for your API Management Gateway system. For example, if you use Microsoft Azure, check out the official documentation, to learn how to change the buffer-response setting from true to false.
