How to export and import landing pages in Sage X3 V12

Sage X3 provides an excellent feature called landing pages or home pages which are very useful for the end-users to set up visual process flows, a visual representation of data for various screens and processes.

The data represented on the landing pages helps the user see the overall performance of functionalities and customizations with real-time data or for analytical purposes.

The landing page (or home page) component cannot get added in the patch as X3 does not allow this during patch creation. If there are many landing pages, it would be difficult to create them manually in the client’s environment. This can be solved using Export and Import of home pages. Consider a Test landing page with a few test data of sales invoice fields as shown below.

This landing page is created using graphical query tool and can be created in many ways such as using statistical parameters, SQL query tool, using views, etc.

So, to export this landing page,

Navigate to All -> Administration -> Utilities -> Exports -> Customization management

Click on “Action” button in top right corner of screen and click on “New Customization” option and create a new customization of code “ZCMTEST”. Select check box “Export home pages”. In “Home pages section”, enter the “page name” (here it “Test”) of that landing page and click on “Action” button in the top right corner of the screen and save as shown below.
