Batch Private Query Export/Import

Currently "admin" does not have the ability to in mass/batch export/import all users private queries. Expecting each user to migrate their own private queries from one CQ instance to another during server/CQ version upgrade is very inefficient on a large scale with 1000s of users. This would be like asking each user to export and import all the attachments that they made to records.
CQ should provide the administrator the capability to export all individual users private queries and import them back into their accounts on the new server.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.

    If you need it in the short term to meet business needs, then a potential alternative will be for you to engage with Services team to try to customize a script as an acceptable workaround.
