All my Data Models disappeared when I charged The getting Startes Example "Simple travell Request"


Hello to the hole Bonita community, I’m new in Bonita 7.2, any help will be appreciated.
This is the problem:
I has just charged in the bonita bm studio 7.2.0 the example Simple Travel Request from the Getting started tutorial from the official documentation of Bonita soft. The studio showed me a message saying I had a process with the same name, and If I continue I will lose the process that existed in my Workspace working copy. As I don't mind the process that existed in my workspace called Travel request, I decided to over-write it with the example that I had downloaded from the bonita official site.

And them I got errors in my own Process called "Registro Simple..." and I get realized that my Business Data Model had disappeared, I have process variables but with errors, saying that the Data Model don't exist.
All my own data Model have disappeared.
Is this normal?, Can I recover them in any way?

Could be a bug or issue, or could be the next issue that I found surfing in the Web:

Hello everybody, this was what told me josegante , is it true?

English version:
I do not know if it's a bug but seems to be normal behavior of Bonita.
When you import a file .bos, it can contain a new, which overwrites you have in your Studio, since you can only have one.
For the next time, before you import a .bos, you can remove the BDM you have in your Studio and then merge the .xml files to keep your objects of BDM and the ones you try to import.

This one is the BEST answer!

Unfortunately yes it is true.

However Bonitasoft have recognized how BDM is managed is not correct and will be introducing a new method of managing BDMs.

When this will happen I don't know. Will it be 7.3 or 7.4 or 8, time will tell.


PS: If this reply answers your question, please mark as resolved.

Ok Thank you, I also lost some Forms, that I had in the UI Designer, with the same name, is it also usual?

Forms with the same nae will only overwrite each other. Not something you want to do.
