Importing and exporting projects

Export your project

Export your Dradis project for collaboration, for consistency, or for testing purposes. When you export, you can choose whether you want to export the whole project or a project template.

Full project exports are just that, the entire project complete with screenshots and attachments. Choose the full project export when you want to recreate this exact project or continue working on the project elsewhere.

Project templates are designed for consistency. These project scaffolds are ready to be uploaded to new projects or to be added to the list of available Project templates you can select when creating a new project.

  1. Open the project you want to export

  2. Click Export results in the header and navigate to the Save and restore project information tab.
