A coworker and I wrote a utility to move projects from one server to another. for the workitems, we used export/import for the grunt work, and then our utility fixed up all the links to things that changed IDs, copied attachments, approvals, etc.. which the product doesn't do.

Yes, there is no built in capability to move data. It is possible to approach this by using export and import potentially with some post-processing using custom automation.

No. That is not possible in any version of RTC.

To improve this behavior, I suggest filing explicit enhancement requests against the current export/import behavior.

I wrote that as an example how work item export and import could be enhanced. It is not production tested and there are issues with it that need to be fixed if it is to be used on a greater scale.
