Considerations

Source from Development Environment

In order to download file from an environment, you must configure file for Fast Formula as shown below. Note that File Name (with Path) should be entered first in format - /SetupTasks/FastFormulas/<TASK CODE>/<BASE_FORMULA_NAME>.zip. File name is used as Formula Name, and parent folder is used as Task Code. Either TaskCode and Formula Name can be entered manually as well if necessary. Steps - Enter File Name in proper format, Click Evaluate, then click OK and eventually click Save to save configurations. Now you can add this file to Package and perform, export and import.

Source from SCM

The following convention is generally used for the File Name (with Path)  in Source Code Repository. "/SetupTasks/FastFormulas/<Task Code>/<Formula Name>.zip". If you follow these conventions, then you do not have to configure Files manually. You are ready to perform export and import using FlexDeploy package once files are discovered in FlexDeploy.

Task Code is derived from zip file sourced from SCM.
