In some cases, you require access to your entire database:

  • To migrate to other systems / databases;
  • To create an analysis or report with external SQL-based tools.

This database dump does not contain attachments (example : Cv's), only the name of the attachment will be exported
The export will not export the attachments (example CV's), it will however export the name of the file.
When you would like a database dump that includes the attachments (extra costs) then please contact our Customer Success Team

In your role as Carerix administrator, you can activate your own database download: During the night a file will be created containing a "dump" from your database; this file will be available for download (from a Carerix server) the next day.
