Building an Lifecycle Services import Package

Once you have created your framework within the Task Recorder, and recorded your business process tasks, you can get it ready to be used within the Lifecycle Services projects as a template business process model by creating an export file.

NOTE: This is part of the Creating Lifecycle Services Business Process Models with the Task Recorder blueprint series where we show how to use the Task Recorder feature within Dynamics AX to create template business process models within Lifecycle Services.

How to do it…

To create an export package for the Lifecycle Services business process, follow these steps:

  1. Open up the Task Recorder, and select the Framework that you want to create the export package for.
  2. Then click on the Build package menu item within the Periodic group of the Settings ribbon bar.
  3. This will initiate a batch that will run in the background to create the package for you.

    Tip: The export package will be stored within the default export directory of the Task Recorder. To find that location just click on the Parameters menu item within the Setup group of the Settings ribbon bar.

    The file location will be shown in the Recording file path field.

  4. If you open up the Task Recorder folder, then you will be able to see all of the export packages that the Task Recorder created.
