PB Files


PB file (Palo Bundle) is the package export file type of Jedox.

You can find the Export and Import commands on the context menu after right clicking on a folder or a file. Starting from a folder, the command Export will create a PB file.

Additionally, in the Reports module the commands Export All Folder Groups and Export Folder Group are available

In the Reports module, the command Export also takes the needed files of the Report Designer module into the package.

You can import a PB file as an entire package again.

During the import, the contents of the PB file will be displayed:

The following message is displayed:

You can also display an import log:

Note: When you export and import root folders separately, the resource workbook connection between them is lost. 

For import, you can set the limit in php.ini, in <Jedox directory>\httpd\php via the following parameters:

  • post_max_size
  • upload_max_filesize

The default value is 128 Megabytes. You must restart the Jedox-HTTP service after making changes in php.ini.

If the export also includes framesets, then select the folder to export so that all the framesets used in workbooks are included.

Access rights for the exported hierarchy are included in the bundle, but are only applied upon import if the user group exists in the system where the bundle is imported.

During import, the internal item IDs are rewritten if possible (or necessary). Since hyperlinks between workbooks are based on these IDs, some hyperlinks may not work after importing. This only concerns hyperlinks created with the “Insert Hyperlink” dialog, not the HYPERLINK() formula. Hyperlinks within a workbook are also not influenced by this.
