Dashboard Admin API Export

To make Tyk installations more portable, the Export API enables you to export key configuration objects required to back-up and re-deploy a basic Tyk Pro installation.


To enable this feature, the minimum required versions for the Gateway and Dashboard are v2.3 and v1.3.1.2, respectively.


In a production environment, you will need to change the default admin_Secret value that is called by the admin-auth header in your tyk_analytics.conf file. This is located in /opt/tyk-dashboard.

Export Organisations

The organisation object is the most fundamental object in a Tyk setup, all other ownership properties hang off the relationship between an organisation and its APIs, Policies and API Tokens.
