Create Backup of the Environment

Service Administrators can back up the environment by downloading the maintenance snapshot from the environment to a local folder.

If users modified data or artifacts after the last maintenance window, Service Administrators should perform the appropriate export operations and then download the resulting snapshot to a local folder. You can upload and import the saved snapshot into the relocated environment.

For Services Other Than Narrative Reporting
