Manually created topology backup
This page describes StackState version 4.1.
The StackState 4.1 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.1 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.
This page describes the process of exporting and importing manual topology data, i.e. components and relations that are not synchronized via StackPacks.
- 1.Create the export file:sts graph list --manual --ids Component Relation \| xargs \sts graph export --ids \> manual_topo.stj
- 2.Check the generated file
manual_topo.stjto make sure it contains a correct export of all your topology.
Breakdown of the export command used in the example above:
sts graph list --manual --ids Component Relationlists all ids of manually created components and relations.
| xargsconnects the
sts graph export --idsexports all graph nodes by ids.
> manual_topo.stjdumps the results in the file
Manually created relations to synchronized components may fail on import if these synchronized components do not exist anymore.
sts graph import < manual_topo.stj
