9.1.3.5. Exporting a configuration

By the default an exported configuration contains the values for all environments (and can therefore be applied as is to all other instances).

In some situations it is not suitable to export all environments' values.

For example:

  • do not expose productive configuration information to a tester debugging a problem
  • you may not want any values from the "test" environment in your live systems (even if they are not used there)

Select option "Export with values for specific environment(s)" to do so:

Using Ctrl + Left Mouse Button any subset of the environment(s) can be selected.

In the above example all plugins and properties that are relevant for the Production environment are NOT included in the exported configuration.

As the warning in the dialog hints, this process is not reversible: A derived configuration can NOT be imported back into the configuration it was derived from.
