export variation pages not being exported RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We enabled the Export Variation and Import Variation in the UI as given in Stefan Gobner's blog here. When we try to do an Export Variation from one of our target varations, we get only 4 or 5 pages in the cmp file that is exported. We could see the pages by renaming the cmp as .cab file. These 4 or 5 pages are all pages that are at the variation label web level(<a href="http:///<variationlabel>/pages">http://<sitecollection>/<variationlabel>/pages). In the variation hierarchy, we have selected to propagate the pusblishing sites as well as pages from source label to target label. Can anyone help us with this issue?


    Adding to the above, we ran the variationsfixup command with the fix attribute and we found in the output that in the "Variations Source Hierarchy table", there were only 4 or 5 pages and the other pages were not listed. I guess this could be a problem. Can anyone point out why the other pages are not listed in the Variations Source Hiearachy?

  • Hi Entan,

    We got confused about how variation export works. We were exporting a web and looking for the pages of the subwebs inside that web in the export package, but export variation exports only the current web being exported and does not include any subwebs and similarly for import. Sorry for the trouble.
