BuildForge – Exporting projects using bfexport | BuildForge Guide

Spread the Knowledge



BuildForge Home Dir – Platform

To display command syntax, use bfexport with no options.

 $ ./bfexport

 Usage: bfexport -l


 bfexport [-c comment] [-f filename] [-g] [-s] [-L] [-n] <Project name or UUID> <Version name>

 Options :

 -l: Lists all projects in the system and their project UUID.

-c : Add a comment to the output XML.

-f : File to write the output to.

-g : Include group users.

-s : Include all servers.

-C : Include servers collectors (requires -s).

-L : Include LDAP configuration.

-n : Include template notifications.

Project must be a valid project name or project UUID.


To list the project names and project IDs that are stored in the Build Forge database, use

 > bfexport -l

To send project data to an XML file,

> bfexport -f <file_name>. You must specify the -f <file_name> option to generate a file that can be used to import project data.

To write output to a file, use the -f <file_name> option. In the following example, helloworld is the output file name and the project ID is used instead of the project name.

> bfexport -c “Saving a copy of project before making changes” -f helloworld 675B57CC-8366-11DD-B2E0-043C04E44E1A

To export the default project snapshot only, use the <project_name>.

> bfexport -f helloworld test_project

To export one snapshot of a project, use the <project_name> <snapshot_name>.

> bfexport -f helloworld test_project snapshot_1

If the parent project snapshot is not the default project, you must specify the <project_name> followed by the parent keyword to export the parent project snapshot.

 > bfexport -f helloworld test_project parent Document

 ./bfexport -c “Saving a copy of project before making changes” -C -s -f Citius-Coverity-Full-parent 6d66e5050c5a1000bcd5cd010bc00bc0
