mc replicate export


The mc replicate export command exports the JSON-formatted replication rules for a MinIO bucket to STDOUT.

The following command exports the replication configuration for the mydata bucket on the myminio MinIO deployment:

mc replicate export myminio/mydata > mydata-replication.json

The command has the following syntax:

  • Brackets [] indicate optional parameters.

  • Parameters sharing a line are mutually dependent.

  • Parameters separated using the pipe | operator are mutually exclusive.

Copy the example to a text editor and modify as-needed before running the command in the terminal/shell.



Required the alias of the MinIO deployment and full path to the bucket or bucket prefix for which to export the replication rules. For example:

mc replicate export myminio/mybucket

Global Flags

This command supports any of the global flags.


Export Existing Replication Rules

Use mc replicate export to export bucket replication rules:

mc replicate export ALIAS/PATH > bucket-replication-rules.json
  • Replace ALIAS with the alias of the MinIO deployment.

  • Replace PATH with the path to the bucket or bucket prefix.


S3 Compatibility

The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested with MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.

MinIO provides no guarantees for other S3-compatible services, as their S3 API implementation is unknown and therefore unsupported. While mc commands may work as documented, any such usage is at your own risk.
