One Click Export

We work hard to make sure your data is secure, always available, and backed up. We're also big believers in data portability and recognize that the ability to get data out of Parse is important to some users. We built the REST API with this goal in mind but we've gotten many requests for an easier method for bulk exporting of an app's entire data set.

So, today we're launching a new way to export everything with just one click.

Go to your app's settings page and click export. After a few minutes we'll send you an email with
a link to a file that contains all of your data stored in Parse. The format is identical to the one returned by the REST API so there's no need to write extra parsing code.
