Migrate from a Guru Export

After you have exported a Guru Collection as a .zip file, you can re-import it into Guru. This feature may be useful when you are moving a Collection from one team to another or restoring a backup of a Collection.


Access Required

You must have admin + author access OR Collection owner access for the specific Collection to migrate content from another Guru instance into a new instance.

How to Import Exported Guru Content into Guru

  1. Navigate to Manage.
  2. Click the Collections tab.
  3. Click the Collection Settings ellipses ("⋮") in the top right of the Collection where you want to import the content.
  4. Select Import Content and then Guru.
  1. Drag and drop or upload the downloaded file that you received from Guru, then click Start Import.
  2. Your file will be uploaded to our migrator tool, where we will process the files into a readable format for Guru, compress those files, then upload them to the designated Collections.

Due to the nature of these jobs, the general waiting time can exceed 30 minutes. An email will be sent once this migration is complete.
