Exporting Airbyte Configuration


The user is asking if it is possible to export Airbyte configuration to another instance.



is it possible to export airbyte configuration?

i have multiple sources+destinations+connections configured in one airbyte, and want to export them into another (dev) instance.

I recommend configuration-as-a-code approach by using terraform for managing configuration https://registry.terraform.io/providers/airbytehq/airbyte/latest/docs

you define your sources+destinations+connections and apply changes on selected Airbyte instance

as far as I know there is no easy way to export existing configuration and importing it on another Airbyte instance
you can use Airbyte API to read configuration, but you won’t get credentials for your connectors, because they are masked with **********
still, you would have to check secrets in database
