Import entity file will reset the persistent property values of Things

Import entity file will reset the persistent property values of Things

Hi, 

Every time when I fixed a bug in the local dev system and then import the thing's entity xml file to the testing/production system,  the value of persistent property get reset in the target system.   I have to manually input them again.   

Why is the behavior  designed like this ?  or it's a bug ?   I'm currently using ThingWorx 8.5.5 , but the problem has existed since 8.4 at least. 

 

Regards,

Sean

@VladimirRosu ,

Sorry, my mistake.  I just found the import function has a new option "Overwrite Property Values" since ThingWorx 855.

I expect that this is the expected behavior. The Thing concept, besides its definition (property/alert/event definition) includes also the state (property values) and logic (service), and they are all imported at once, hence the overwrite.

If you want to import something I suggest (but am not 100% sure) to see how the Thing import behaves at the Configuration Tables level - does it override current configured values there or does it leave them intact?
