Artifactory supports the import and export of data at two levels:
Repository level: Artifactory can export and import data and metadata stored in a repository. This is useful when moving store data, including its metadata between repositories and for batch population of a repository.
System level: Artifactory can export and import the whole Artifactory server: configuration, security information, stored data and metadata. The format used is identical to the System Backup format. This is useful when manually running backups and for migrating and restoring a complete Artifactory instance (as an alternative to using database-level backup and restore).
