  • Procedure
  • Navigate to Your Realm App
  • Export the App

You can export Realm apps to a local application directory from the Realm UI. Exported application directories use the name of the Realm app and the application's ObjectId.

Secrets Not Exported

When you export your Realm app, the export does not include the secrets. To add your secrets to a different app, refer to the documentation on migrating configuration, including secrets, to a new Realm app.

Before you begin, you must be logged in as a Project Owner of the MongoDB Atlas project where you want to export the app. You can learn more about creating an Atlas account in the Atlas Getting Started documentation.


Go to the Project Dashboard where you want to export the Realm app. Select the Realm tab. Select the tile for the Realm app you want to export.


Click Deployment in the left-hand navigation.

From here, there are two ways to export your app.

  1. Go to the Export App tab. Click the Export App button. This exports the configuration for the version of the app that is currently deployed.
