Importing BPI files via the command line

BuildPlus has the ability to import projects from BPI (BuildPlus Import) files, which are turn created via exporting and can also be found in each project's error files folder. Particularly for large batches of imports you may find it helpful to use the command line.


Importing single BPI files

To import a BPI file you need to specify at least the file to import and the Build Root to import into.



 "C:\Program Files\GMCL\DBDOC\Programs\BuildPlus" /importbpi "C:\DBDOC_BUILDS\Project07\Project07.bpi" /importroot "D:\DBDOC_BUILDS"

Specify name for single BPI import


 "C:\Program Files\GMCL\DBDOC\Programs\BuildPlus" /importbpi "C:\DBDOC_BUILDS\Project07\Project07.bpi" /importroot "D:\DBDOC_BUILDS" /importproj "Project07_copy01"

Import multiple BPI files


For both previous importing examples the CSV file would look, when viewed as plain text, like:


To import, specify the path to the CSV file.

 "C:\Program Files\GMCL\DBDOC\Programs\BuildPlus" /importbatch "C:\DBDOC_BUILDS\Project07\Project07.csv"
