Migrate the LCA, which contains the repository forms, to LiveCycle application model using Adobe LiveCycle Workbench Archive Migration Tool. As a result, an LiveCycle application is created.
Forms, which are part of an Adobe® LiveCycle® application, are synchronized automatically and are available in Forms Manager user interface.
You can add forms to the LiveCycle repository using LiveCycle Workbench. In LiveCycle ES4, Forms Manager offers an alternate way to add forms to the repository. It offers a browser-based user interface, which can be used to search, list, add, update, and delete forms in the repository and manage their meta properties.
Once the assets in the ZIP are created/updated, they are listed as part of the repository hierarchy in Forms Manager as well as in the Workbench application view.
The Upload button is enabled only when you click the folder to which you want to upload the form/ZIP file.
Newly-uploaded assets are displayed in the upper half of the dialog. Assets that exist in CRX™ and are being updated appear in the lower half of the dialog.
Using the method above you can add new and edited forms to the repository and Forms Manager user interface. However, your existing forms may or may not be part of an LiveCycle application. To get your existing and legacy forms in Forms Manager, follow the steps below based on your use case.
Forms, which are part of an Adobe LiveCycle application, are synchronized automatically and are available in Forms Manager user interface. If there are any issues with the default synchronization process, you can use the On-demand asset synchronization feature to manually synchronize the LiveCycle native repository and the CRX™ repository.
If your existing forms are created using LiveCycle 8.x, they may be available in LiveCycle repository but not in a LiveCycle application. To migrate such forms in to Forms Manager, follow these steps:
Manually synchronize the newly created LiveCycle application in Forms Manager.
Use either of the following two methods to get such forms in Forms Manager.
Using LiveCycle Workbench:
Using Forms Manager user interface:
If your existing forms contain other assets besides XDP files, PDF forms, folders, and images, use LiveCycle Workbench to get the forms in Forms Manager.
