Copy Project from app to development environment

Description of the limitation and why it is relevant to address

As a Developer I want to be able to copy a project from the live environment to the development environment so that I can recreate error situations that the users have.

I think this is relevant for the VIKTOR platform because it allows bugs/problems to be dealt with quicker.

The current solution is to manually fill in a project as they have. For a simple app this is workable but for larger apps with multiple levels, this costs a lot of time.

Hi Natalie,

Thanks for taking the time to write out this request! Your question makes a lot of sense, so much so that VIKTOR’s own developers have developed a tool that just this! There is no magic to it, as every VIKTOR app is accessible through an API already anyway, but the tool is not on a (polish) level that we are going to share it with the world. I think there may be a lot of ways VIKTOR could offer you some functionality similar to what you describe, so I made a issue on our internal board to track this request.

In the not-too-distant future we are going to roll out some things that will help you as a developer to find out what is going wrong for a user, which might alleviate some of the annoyance. We will keep you posted on that!
