Export a project

    This page will guide you through exporting a project as an SQLite database.

    Starting an export🔗

    As a project export can take a long time, it is executed asynchronously. You can start exports, watch their progress and download them from the web interface. Starting an export is subject to some conditions:

    • An export cannot be started if one is already created or running.
    • An export cannot be started if one has completed successfully in the last 6 hours.
    • An export cannot be started if you do not have contributor access on the project.

    To start an export🔗

    1. Open a project's element list in the web interface.
    2. In the Actions menu, click on Manage exports.
    1. In the modal, click the Start export button.

    Monitoring an export🔗

    You can access the exports list and watch the state of an export at any time from the web interface. The export can have one of the following states:

    • Created: The export has been queued.
    • Running: The export is currently running on our servers.
    • Done: The export is completed and can be downloaded.
    • Failed: An error occurred with the export.

    To monitor an export🔗

    1. On the export list modal, click the Refresh button.

    Downloading an export🔗

    An email will be sent if the export completes or fails. When the export completes, the email includes a link to download the export.

    Once logged in the web interface, you can download any of the generated exports if you do have a guest access or the project is public. The list is accessible from the main page of a project in Actions > Manage exports.


    Exports are deleted automatically from the Arkindex instance after two weeks.

    To download an export from the web interface🔗

    1. Open the export management modal from the Actions menu.
    2. Click the Download button next to the export you want to download.
    1. Save the file to your computer.
