rt-dump-metadata - dump configuration metadata from an RT database


    rt-dump-metadata [--all]


rt-dump-metadata is a tool that dumps configuration metadata from the Request Tracker database into XML format, suitable for feeding into rt-setup-database. To dump and load a full RT database, you should generally use the native database tools instead, as well as performing any necessary steps from UPGRADING.

This is NOT a tool for backing up an RT database. See also initialdata for more straightforward means of importing data.


--all or -a

When run with --all, the dump will include all configuration metadata; otherwise, the metadata dump will only include 'local' configuration changes, i.e. those done manually in the web interface.

--limit-to-privileged or -l

Causes the dumper to only dump privileged users.

--skip-disabled or -s

Ignores disabled rows in the database.
