export repository_id [options] dataset

export repository_id [options] dataset plugin [objectid] [objectid...]

User Comments


This command outputs a dataset in the selected format. The formats available depend on what Export plugins have been installed.

Some plugins only operate on lists (e.g. RSS), others only operate on single objects only. Some plugins act slightly differently in single-item only mode. For example, outputing a list of eprints as XML gives a number of <eprint> elements in an outer <eprints> element.

To get the plugin to export a single item use --single. This may not always return a complete file. For example it may be missing the <?xml header, depending on the plugin.
