Org Archives & Switching Hosts

If you're an Org Owner, EnvKey can export an encrypted archive of your org that includes all its apps, environments, branches, variables, people, CLI keys, and server ENVKEYs.

This archive can then be imported into a fresh organization on a different host.

Export An Archive

Open up the EnvKey V1 App and sign in. Open up the sidebar settings menu (click the ⚙️ icon), and then click My Organization. Look for the Export Archive For V2 section near the bottom of the settings form, then click the Export Archive button and choose a location for the .envkey-archive file. When the export completes, Encryption Key will be shown in an alert dialog. Copy this--you'll need it when importing the archive into v2.

Open the EnvKey UI and sign in to your organization. Click the Org, account, and device settings menu with your organization's name in it at the top-left of the screen. From there, click My Org. Then click on the Import/Export tab, and then the Export Org button and choose a location for the .envkey-archive file. When the export completes, an Encryption Key will be shown. Copy this--you'll need it when importing the archive.

Import An Archive

First, install EnvKey v2 and create a fresh organization to import into. Then open the EnvKey UI. Click the Org, account, and device settings menu with your organization's name in it at the top-left of the screen. From there, click My Org. Then click on the Import/Export tab, and then the Import Org button. Select the .envkey-archive file you want to import, enter the Encryption Key associated with the archive, then start the import.
