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” in docs 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.
