Export/Import Sentry Projects


I have an old sentry instance (7.4.3) and a new sentry instance running the latest sentry via docker (8.22.0). The old sentry instance doesn’t really appear to be collecting new events at the moment so I thought I’d take the opportunity to switch to the new instance.

I was just wondering if it’s possible to import the existing projects from the old sentry instance. I don’t care about any of the events. I’d just like to avoid having to update the RAVEN_DSN environment variable on all of my Django projects if at all possible.

Is that feasible?


You can try running ‘sentry export’ and then ‘sentry import’ – while this is somewhat tested, I’d make sure to keep ahold of your legacy data until you’ve confirmed you’ve gotten what you want/need.
