Share Import-Export 1.1 released

The v1.1.1 release of Share Import-Export has been up for a few days now, but I wanted to summarise some of the changes in the new version.



The most significant addition is support for importing and exporting security groups in JSON format, via the new import-groups.py and export-groups.py scripts.



As well as this the import-users.py script has been made slightly more flexible, with the addition of a --users argument to allow you to import just a few users from a larger set. Since the sample data contains a large number of users that are used across all the different sample sites, you can now import just the users you need for a particular site.



As well as these functional improvements I've started cleaning up the code internally, an area I intend to focus a little more on over the next few weeks. For now I've just cleaned up the docstrings within each script, and updating the --help flags to re-use the usage information in there.



Last but not least, I should thank Dick from Formktek for reporting an issue with the user export script, which was causing some exported profile images to become corrupted when saved.



Beyond a few more tidy-ups the code is almost where I want it to be within the current constraints of the repository. But there have been a couple of ideas suggested for future uses of the scripts, so if there's a particular purpose you think the scripts could have or you just want to share your experiences, please leave a comment below.

Dear Will,



The tool is fantastic. I simply exported a site with content, without problems. When I want to import to an other machine the will imported, but the contents (acp files) not.



Where can I find the problem?



Thanks for your reply!

Hi Tamas, thanks for the feedback. I've just released a new version of the tool (v1.2.1) with some fixes for both importing and exporting site content, plus support for Alfresco 4.0, so I'd recommend you give that a try and see if that works better. Also don't forget that when you export the site you need to specify the --export-content option to generate the ACPs.
