3160232 - Signavio Database Back up


I have been exploring in the past weeks to get a back-up of all our models (value chains, BPMN etc) on the Workspace. I' am looking into possibilities to backup all of or data. 

There are 3 formats which are currently provided SGX, XML and PDF. SGX export, is it possible to use one of these formats in an automatic back up schedule?


The idea behind the export functionalities is to deliver a functionality to exchange diagrams and not to create backups. You can of course use them for backing up data with some restrictions. The SGX Export can include multiple diagrams but be aware that SGX shouldn't be larger than <32 MB, due to import limits. The information from the feed (author, change dates) and comments are not saved in these files.

A mechanism for automatic exports does not exist.

Our cloud servers are regularly backed up, so you do not need backups for disaster recovery.
