Subject [jira] [Commented] (SENTRY-197) Create tool to dump and load of entire Sentry service

Jarek Jarcec Cecho commented on SENTRY-197:
-------------------------------------------

Good question and interesting idea [~tctruong213]. SENTRY-199 has created utility to convert
privileges from the policy files into database provider. If the "dump" portion would dump
data into correct policy file then you would be completely correct. I was originally thinking
about having some special intermediate data format specific to Sentry, but you're right -
this format can possibly be an valid policy file.

> We are storing entire content of the Sentry service in a database. It would be useful
to have a sentry tool that would be able to dump entire content in sentry specific format
(that will be independent on the used database backend) and it's counterpart that would be
able to read this format and load the data into another instance of the Sentry Service.
> Such tool can be very helpful for:
> * Backups
> * Migration from one backend store to another
> * Debugging content of the underlying database
