Request body

In the request body, supply data with the following structure:

{
  "exportContext": {
    "kind": "sql#exportContext",
    "fileType": string,
    "uri": string,
    "databases": [
      string
    ],
    "sqlExportOptions": {
      "tables": [
        string
      ],
      "schemaOnly": boolean
    },
    "csvExportOptions": {
      "selectQuery": string
    }
  }
}
Property name Value Description Notes
exportContext nested object Contains details about the export operation.
exportContext.kind string This is always sql#exportContext.
exportContext.uri string The path to the file in Google Cloud Storage where the export will be stored. The URI is in the form gs://bucketName/fileName. If the file already exists, the operation fails. If fileType is SQL and the filename ends with .gz, the contents are compressed.
exportContext.fileType string The file type for the specified uri.
SQL: The file contains SQL statements.
CSV: The file contains CSV data.
exportContext.databases[] list Databases (for example, guestbook) from which the export is made. If fileType is SQL and no database is specified, all databases are exported. If fileType is CSV, you can optionally specify at most one database to export. If csvExportOptions.selectQuery also specifies the database, this field will be ignored.
exportContext.sqlExportOptions object Options for exporting data as SQL statements.
exportContext.sqlExportOptions.tables[] list Tables to export, or that were exported, from the specified database. If you specify tables, specify one and only one database.
exportContext.csvExportOptions object Options for exporting data as CSV.
exportContext.csvExportOptions.selectQuery string The select query used to extract the data.
exportContext.sqlExportOptions.schemaOnly boolean Export only schemas.

Response

If successful, this method returns an operation resource in the response body. Note that only the fields that are relevant to the export operation will be populated.
