The NPM new feature summary offers a comparison of new features and improvements offered with this release.
SAM templates should be in XML format with the file extension .apm-template. When importing, verify the file type and extension. If you have a zip file for the template, unzip files before importing. If the file name or type is not correct, you will receive an invalid error. If you receive the error when importing from THWACK, you need to check the files in THWACK.
You may receive an invalid format error when importing an incorrect file type (XML required), incorrect file name (.apm-template required), or attempt to import a zip file.
If you receive this when importing from THWACK, visit the template page in THWACK to verify the format. If it is a zip file, unzip and import as a file.
For details, see the SAM Administrator Guide.
Verify the file type is XML coded.
Verify the extension is .apm-template.
Unzip any zip files and import the contents.
