Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit WDS-I-85 Need capability to backup and restore collections across environments.

Ability to export/import or migrate the data from a collection to another. Merged

We have a Discovery corpus with over 50K documents several of which have large documents (PDF's, Word Docs etc). It take over 9 hours to recreate the full Discovery collection from scratch.

It would really help if there was a way to export a collection from one environment and import it into another (or same environment as a different collection)  such that there is no need to re-run the document conversion, entity extraction etc. 


This will reduce the time to move a collection from test/staging  environment to prod etc.
