Q1, 2023 — Data Import & Export
If you're currently using another solution to manage your content, you might be interested a lot in this feature. To make it short, it will allow you to import or export data directly from the interface (CSV, JSON).
UPD: the feature is available in v4.6. See more details: https://strp.cc/3jKzeP7
I opened a new feature request for a way to export and import from the web UI.
Will there actually be export and import buttons in the web interface in future updates? I currently have Strapi deployed in Railway and can't reach the project directory from the terminal.
It's not very useful. The table "files_folder_links" is empty, files folder_path are pointing to wrong entry in upload_folders etc. I guess main issue is, that you do not delete/reset sequences so the IDs are increasing all the time instead of being reset (what I don't understand, as you anyway truncate most tables). Hope that next versions are more useful and stable. Currently doing database import/export manual, what is more safe.
On the documentation (https://docs.strapi.io/developer-docs/latest/developer-resources/data-management.html#export-data-using-the-cli-tool) I can see that admin users and admin tokens are not exported. That's very good because they are instance-specific (as you elaborated in the last community call.
Are content-api users (from the users-permissions plugin) also not exported, or can the export feature be configured in a way to not export the content-api users?

Derrick Mehaffy: Is the CSV content entries import/export to be release in Q1?
da_kicks_87: No this is our DEITS feature, you can find a summary of the scope and how it works in this example repo I created: https://github.com/derrickmehaffy/strapi-demo-v4-DEITS
Derrick Mehaffy: The OP above mentions CSV. That's why I asked. I was looking forward to that.
da_kicks_87: While we haven't built that in, DEITS is built on a provider system so it would be possible for users to build a "source" or "destination" provider for CSV. We opted to build the feature using jsonl (json lines)
The first beta release for the data export data import feature is out. You can see the Forum post for more information: https://forum.strapi.io/t/data-import-export/24443/16
Are we going to be able to export components/content-types structures? It seems this is not exposed in the API. Or is there a workaround? I am trying to backup this information with exports.
Currently using Strapi V4 self-hosted, and want to import data to Strapi Cloud (Beta) - does the work being done on this tool cover that use case also?
