Contentstack allows you to export the JSON file of any existing content type in your stack.
To export an existing content type, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:
- Go to your stack, click on the Content tab (if it is not open)
- Hover on the content type you want to export, click on the “More Options” icon (three vertical dots) that appears at the extreme right end, and select Export Content Type.
This will download the JSON file of your content type and save it to your local storage system. Any changes made to this JSON file will be retained when importing.
Let’s see how to export a content and save the JSON file into our system.
To perform the export action via API request, refer to the Export a Content Type API request.
