If you have an existing domain in Constellix, you can easily import the full record set of the existing domain into another domain in your account.  This guide will walk you through the process.

Note: After importing your records into Constellix, you can modify them at any time.

Common Use Case for Importing Records From an Existing Domain

Importing records from an existing domain simplifies and speeds up the process of adding records to a domain. It also helps cut back on errors and misconfigurations that can occur when records are created manually.


  • You already have a Constellix account
  • Another domain already exists in your account

  2. Select Domain 

    From the domains list, click on the domain you want to import records into. 

  3. Import Records  

    Once in the domain that you are importing records to, click the green Import Records button on the right-hand side of the page.
