Export Terms with the Term Transfer Tool

You can export terms by running the Term Transfer Tool with the appropriate parameters. To export terms, run the Term Transfer Tool with the following command syntax:

transfer.bat --export [--usage] --server <hostname>  --user <name> --password <password> --config <exportConfigName> [--output <filename>]
Windows Example
transfer.bat --export --server demo-inc.acrolinx.com --user admin --password qe8TedAC --config DemoTermsExport --output c:\files\export\demoterms.csv
Unix-based Operating Systems
$ bash ./transfer.sh --export [--usage] --server <hostname> --user <name> --password <password> --config <exportConfigName> [--output <filename>]

You use the following options and arguments to export terms with the Term Transfer Tool script. For each argument, you can use either the abbreviated (-o) or the full name (--output):

-? (--usage or --help)(Optional) Display help for the arguments.
--exportSelect export mode.
-s (--server) <serverAddress>
Set the Acrolinx URL.

If you're connecting to a secure Acrolinx Core Platform, you must include the port in the Acrolinx URL.

-u (--user) <userName>Set the username that you use to sign in to Acrolinx.
-p (--password) <password>Set the password that you use to sign in to Acrolinx.
-k <API token>

(Optional) Send an API token to the Core Platform for authentication and authorization purposes. You can't use this along with the -p option, which specifies a password.

Note that the user for whom the API token was generated needs to have the "Access API-based terminology applications" privilege.

-c (--config) <exportConfig>Set the name of the saved export configuration that contains the export settings for your export file.
-o (--output) <filePath>

(Optional) Set a relative or absolute path and file name where the file will be saved.

-output export\myExport.xml
If you don't set this option, the export file is automatically saved in the directory <INSTALL_DIR>\server\www\output\exportedTerms
-n (--noCheckCertificate)(Optional) Set the exporter to not check the server certificate when using HTTPS.

(Optional) Prints the version information to the command line.

If this option is present, the tool will ignore all other options and only print version information

You can also get help on these commands by running each script without any arguments.
