    May I create a project in RTC  in one server and export it to a file, and then import it to another server?

 We built a RTC server locally  to try to use functionality of change management for our project, our plan is to improve it until it can work properly, then we will build the same project remotely on the other server, which can be used for different users globally.
  We are wondering whether RTC support such feature? And if so, where could I find any instructions to follow to implement it?

Hi Jane

You can't export the RTC PA directly in a file due to many reasons. Data is always appended and the whole CCM dB has to be restored which means change in public URI and a server rename activity is required.

As an alternate, You can extract and export the configuration changes done to the RTC Project Area in a template( zip file). This template can be used to create a new PA on the other RTC server.
Extract and Export Project Area in a template

For the CCM artifacts, you need to create a query that will list all the artifacts and export the query in a csv file.
This csv file can be imported in a new server PA.
Copying work items between repositories using CSV export and import.

There are known limitations with export and import of artifacts in csv( attachments not importing, etc).

Hi Jane

Sure, remember to test it in a testing/staging server.

No, you can't. There is no capability like that in RTC out of the box.
