Exporting configurations enables you to:
- Select specific configuration records or categories of records to export or download.
- Transfer configuration packages to target environments where the package can be imported to update the target.
- Compare configuration files from two different environments using a third party tool.
Use the exported configuration as snapshot of your instance for a particular point in time so that you can store and keep it as an artifact of a project.
