When moving from QUBEdocs Local to QUBEdocs Cloud, you may wish to export snapshots from your local environment into the cloud environment to preserve them or to utilise them for comparison purposes. This feature is available to users that are marked as admins of QUBEdocs Local.
Preparing your QUBEdocs Cloud connection
In order to utilise this feautre, the connection in QUBEdocs Cloud requires an API Token to be set. To do this, navigate to your connection and press the three dots on the top right and click to edit the settings. Navigate to the "Tokens" tab and create a new token (or use an existing one if it is not expired):
This token will be copied to your QUBEdocs Local connection.
Preparing your QUBEdocs Local connection
