K2 Package and Deployment now available


K2 Package and Deployment now available

We are excited to announce the release of K2 Package and Deployment, a utility for migrating K2 assets, including Workflows, SmartObjects and SmartForms, between your environments.

If you have been working with K2 software in your organization for more than a few months, you know that business apps you create with K2 are highly portable and extensible. They use data from multiple and disparate data sources, with forms and workflows that have the ability to span multiple systems. Business apps created with K2 can be delivered anywhere via browser or mobile devices, so users can take action from wherever they are.

Now your business apps are more portable than ever. When you create an application with K2 artifacts - such as views, forms or workflows - K2 Package & Deployment lets you package those items individually or as a full application and move them from one K2 server environment to another.

To get the K2 Package and Deployment installation package, please visit the "Additional Components" section of the K2 blackpearl download page on the K2 Partner and Customer Portal. The additional component download is a full installer and requires the following:

·         K2 blackpearl, version 4.6.5 or later

·         Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0

·         K2 smartforms 1.0.3 or later (optional)

When using K2 Package and Deployment, both the source and target servers need to be running the same version of K2 blackpearl and, if installed, K2 smartforms.

For more information, please see the K2 Package and Deployment Release Notes, or contact your K2 account representative to learn more.
