Export Content Items and Content Types

Thursday 17 August 2017 4:57:04 pm - 2 replies


is it possible to export content items and content types within the admin area? I have not found anything about this issue in the documentation. Nevertheless for eZ Publish there has been a "Setup" tab with a "packages" link, where content could be exported/imported. 

Currently I have made a clean eZ Platform installation, so maybe an extension is missing?

Hello GP,

If you were going to seek out package support you can find that only within the legacy kernel and specifically the legacy admin which supports what your describing. I've used this functionality in many ways with great success.

Just remember to keep your packages as small as possible to avoid potential problems. Some ways to do this is to export content classes and content tree packages separately. Also consider exporting different smaller content trees separately.

Remember that packages are version specific and require basically the same version to import / export unless you are / become comfortable with package unziping and modifying and re-ziping.

No extension is missing it's built into the legacy kernel by default.

I hope this helps happy.gif Emoticon

Thanks Heath,

I'll will try to install the legacy bridge and use the legacy admin for the export / import.
