Database backup

Hi,

    I would like saving my entire database. One json file is fine. It's very important that I keep all the data. Is it possible to export the whole database in one shot?


Thanks

Hi Elizabeth,


You can export individual collections as a Json file backup if you need to. If you navigate to the NoSql page, click find on the collection you wish to backup, then click export and a Json file will be saved to your computer.



You can then re insert them like below if you need to at a certain point in time.




If you create a snapshot you can choose to copy meta collections in the snapshot, runtime collections will always be cleared when a snapshot is created though. If you need any more help just let me know.


Thanks,

Liam
