Understand DS file

This help page is for users in Creator 6. If you are in the older version (Creator 5), click here. Know your Creator version.

Deluge Script (DS) File is a file that stores the structure of a Zoho Creator Application in text format. It captures everything about an Application, right from the Forms, Fields, Reports, Pages, Deluge scripts, Schedules, Sections to Application-level settings.

The DS file of an application can be exported from Application IDE in Application Settings. Inversely, a DS file can be created into an application using the import feature under Solutions.

Note:
  • The DS file of a Zoho Creator Application does not store data maintained in that application. It stores only the application's structure and settings.
  • To take a backup of your application with the data maintained in it, refer this topic.
