Exporting

The CLI allows you to export all resources in Lenses as requests so that they can be version controlled and imported into another environment.

Export operations are performed on a per resource basis, the directory structure is defined by the cli whereas a base directory can be provided using the —dir flag.

Processors, connectors, topics and schemas have an additional prefix flag to restrict resources to export.

lenses-cli export acls --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export alert-settings --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export connections --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export connectors --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export processors --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export quota --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export schemas --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export topics --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export policies --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export groups --dir my-dir
lenses-cli export serviceaccounts --dir my-dir

The directory structure is as follows:
