At a minimum, you must change a few settings in config_ini/vmc.ini. To export, you must have a source refresh token, source org ID, and source SDDC ID.
How do you generate a refresh token? From the CSP, click the down carat next to your name, then click My Account
Click API Tokens, then Generate Token
Name your token and set an expiration time, then give it rights to VMC. You must have Administrative access for full export ability, some of the exporting will work without full admin rights.
My token has been generated. Don’t worry about leaking the refresh token – I disabled it long before posting this screenshot. I left it in here to show people unfamiliar with the tokens what they should look like. But you should take care not to leak your own refresh tokens!
I get my org ID and SDDC ID from the Support tab of the CSP.
I paste them in here.
Now I run the script in export mode.
python sddc_import_export.py -o export
The script outputs JSON files containing the SDDC configuration.
Export is complete! In the Part III, we will cover the import process.
