Importing and Exporting a Solution
When you create a solution package for import or export, only the solution definition is included in the package. The solution's workflows are not included in the solution package, you must import or export the solution's workflows separately.
The solution package includes several elements, including, reference to the master workflow, resource references, plan (for HotOperations solutions), and more.
When you import a solution package, you should validate that the package includes all necessary elements.
If the import package is missing elements, a list of missing elements is displayed.
