Export device things on the basis of thing templates

Hi Team,

 

Suppose I want to export all the device things belonging to one template in one shot so that we can import those device things in other environment.

How can we achieve this? 

 

Note:- We are not using model tags and hence can we do export on the basis of ThingTemplates? (Using TWX v9.3.3)

 

Thanks in advance.

HI @RK_10356304 

 

It is not possible to export things based on ThingTemplates alone.

 

However as a best practice you should be putting your entities into specific projects, not just the PTCDefaultProject.  So you can put your device entities into a logical named project like MyCompany.Devices or DeviceGroup1.Devices.  You can then export the entities based on project name.

 

Projects have a service that allow you to bulk add entities based on search criteria.

 

Thanks,
