Export Site


Starting at 10.7.1, ArcGIS Notebook Server provides this operation to back up the site's configuration store, along with the importSite operation to restore a site configuration from a backup. The configuration store hosts essential information about the ArcGIS Notebook Server site and its machines.

The output of this operation is a ZIP file with the .agssite file extension.

There are many items and directories that are not backed up by this operation. Among them:

  • Notebooks
  • Container settings
  • Jobs directory

If desired, you can create your own file system backups for these items.
