This topic only applies to Enterprise Studio Online, the hosted solution.


It is possible to exchange data between Enterprise Studio Online and your local device, and reverse.

Text can be copied and pasted between Enterprise Studio Online and your local device. Examples of text that can be copied are documentation text of an element, the name of a model, or an object name.

File exchange is done by uploading files to your remote session from your local device, or downloading files from your remote session to your local device. Examples of types of files that can be exchanged are TXT, DOCX, PDF, or (compressed) generated InSite Lite reports.

In order to be able to do this, you first need to permit Chrome to do this. You may see a message pop up, or you can change the setting for the clipboard.


Downloading files from your remote session to your local device

When downloading, one single file at the time can be downloaded to your local device. It is not possible to download folders with content. Generated InSite Lite reports should therefore first be compressed before you download them.

To download a file from your Enterprise Studio Online session to your local device, follow these steps:

  1. In your Enterprise Studio Online session, in the remote session toolbar, click .

  2. In the My Files window, select the folder from which you want to download a file.



  3. To download a file, click the file name, or click the arrow next to the file, and then click Download. The file is placed in your local Downloads folder.

  2. In the My Files window, click the folder you want to upload a file to.

    Take note that if you select the Temporary Files folder, the file will only be saved for the current session. It will be automatically removed once the session ends.



  3. To add a file, drag the file from your local device onto the My Files window, or click Upload files and select the file from your local device. You can upload multiple files at once.


The added files are shown in the window.


Removing files from remote session storage locations

Files that have been uploaded to or saved in the Temporary Files folder will automatically be removed once the remote session ends. Files in the Home folder folder or any (created) subfolder will persist. They need to be removed manually if they are no longer needed.
