Feature Request: Export

Aug 23, 2011 at 1:52 PM

This is a great product for understanding the layout of your SharePoint farm, what would be really good would be to export the content, either at farm or any level below, preferrably to XML, this can then be used to document the farm

Plus if the export was command driven it could be used to monitor unauthorised changes to the farm by comparing (custom XML compare required) this export against a baseline which is updated during authorised changes.

Plus the XML could be compared (with appropriate ignores for IDs) between farms to understand and detect changes for say Dev -> Test -> PreProd -> Prod, this is currently a manual task.

I have written a .net GUI Application for MOSS which does a farm export but it is not quite complete and it has no tree view of the farm like this great app.
