API Portal - Promotion with Akeeba Backup 1.2


The purpose of this knowledge article is to provide step by step instructions on how to promote the API Portal configuration and customizations from a source environment to a target environment using the Akeeba Backup Joomla Plugin.

This article applies to all supported API Portal versions.


Promotion is usually a three-phase process:

1. Export data from the source environment product into a package

2. Copy/move this package toward the target environment (system specific, out of scope of this doc.)

3. Import this package into the target environment product These operations can be made manually or be automated. The attached document describes in detail how to promote API Portal Data with Akeeba backup across multiple environments.

The source environment and target environment must run the same version of API Portal.
