I need to merge an instance of Crucible on a test machine to a new instance of Crucible on a new machine on a separate network. I have admin access and terminal access to both of these machines. What would be the best way to move or copy all of the data from the old machine to the new one? Would it be to make a backup on the old machine, copy that backup to the new one, then use the restore function?
By merge, do you mean: add the review data from one crucible instance to another without impacting the target instance?
That's not possible.
You can export from one instance and import into another. But the import will overwrite all old data.
You might be able to use the REST APIs with some coding to pull all the data from one instance and add it to the other instance, but you will lose some of the history and that would be quite a complex coding adventure.
