Move QM configurations to another server with the same version

When GC is enabled, is it possible to move only specific RQM streams and baselines (eg., the latest baselines) to another RQM server of the same version.

Aware of Importing Test Artifacts into another server, is that also possible with QM streams with GCM enabled.

RQMCopyUtility - does this allow filtering of specific RQM artifacts that need to be moved?

One thing you need to clarify is whether you really mean "move" or whether you mean "copy".   "Move" usually means that all of the links continue to work, and that the artifact no longer exists (or at least, no longer is visible) in the original ("source") location.  Since RQM owns most of its links, most of the links actually follow the copy, with the exception of links with RTC, where RTC owns the links (both links with work items and links with files).  The RTC links will continue to point to the RQM artifacts in their original location, and if those artifacts are  deleted/hidden, those links will dangle.

Hi Sharadha, yes, you can use RQM CopyUtility to move individual artifacts (using artifactId reference) between projects / RQM instances of same versions.

You can also move streams / baselines the same way since these artifacts also support CRUD operations as per RQMAPI document.

Hello Sunil, 
Thanks for the quick response. 
Does the RQMCopyUtility allow copying the RTC links.
How about the performance for huge numbers - say I have 1000+ streams having 10000+ test artifacts.
Which version of RQMCopyUtility supports this. 
Thanks in advance.
