RAM - Move data between RAM instances/environments

In this release, 7.5.2, it is not possible to backup and restore data from one RAM to another. This was possible in 7.5.1.1. We would like functionality to be able to do this, without coding ourselves. Using Libraries is not an option, we have 12.000 assets in RAM today and a library can contain max 1000 assets. We have RAM Dev, RAM Acc and RAM Prod.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Hi, Just one thing need to clarify.

    What do you mean by "This was possible in 7.5.1.1" ? How do you do to move 7511 data?

    Thanks a lot.
