Export Task API

API · Automation Workshop allows Task exporting via API. The Application Programming Interface can be used to export workflows from any script, app, or database.

Features & highlights

  • Export one or multiple Tasks from the command line API to a local or network storage.
  • Export Tasks from one server to import them into another using command line API.
  • Automate Task exporting to supplement the built-in Backup tools.
  • Export a Task, then modify its XML parameters using your custom app. When the app has finished with Task modifications, the Task can be imported back into Automation Workshop using API.


To export a Task using API, use simple syntax:

  • AutomationWorkshop.exe -export "\Tasks\Prepare DB.task" "C:\Expo\"
  • AutomationWorkshop.exe -export "\Tasks\Prepare DB" "C:\Expo"
  • AutomationWorkshop.exe -export "\Prepare DB" "C:\Expo"
  • AutomationWorkshop.exe -export "Prepare DB" "C:\Expo"
"C:\Program Files\Febooti Automation Workshop\
AutomationWorkshop.exe" -export "\Tasks\Database\Prepare DB.task" "\\files02.local\share\export\"

Alternatively, use an absolute Task file path:

  • AutomationWorkshop.exe -export "C:\ProgramData\Febooti Software\Febooti Automation Workshop\Task Files\Production\Prepare DB.task" "D:\Review\Exported Tasks\dc\"


  • The Task's path is shown in the Task PropertiesGeneral & Task tabs.
  • To export a Task via UI, use the Export feature from the File menu.
  • If an error is experienced during the Task exporting process, the Event ID 2265 "Unable to process an external API request" will be shown.
