I tried Exporting a Site to my Test Instance, but my configuration sets, data definitions and content types were not brought over. Am I missing something?, steps taken to export /import site are as follows:
1. Go to Site Management > Select Site and click on EXPORT tab > click Export button.
2. Wait for file to be completed... filename.csse > Save file
3. Go to TEST instance > Site Management > Import Site
4. Drag and drop .csse file
5. Wait for Site to load on new instance.

Please let meknow if I am missing any step... when I check the site... the block assets were included but I was missing everything else... even the pages, there were no pages at all on my site... no config sets, data defs nor content types.
Thanks in advance.

    Hi Perla,

    When you have a moment, try taking a look at your folders and pages to see if there are any components (e.g. metadata set, configuration set, content type, etc) that might be coming from another Site. If so, that Site will need to be imported prior to this Site in order for the cross-Site relationships to remain.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Hello Ryan,
    The site I was importing did contain configuration sets, those were the ones not brought over with the import, content types and metadata sets were good during import. Do we have to recreate configuration sets?

    thanks in advance.

    Hi Perla,

    In some cases, you will run into issues during import if there are items being referenced from another Site and that Site does not yet exist in your test instance. Your best bet would be to either relocate those items to within the Site you are importing and re-export it, or import the Site being referenced first and then import your other Site.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
