What is the best way to refresh our test portal for ArcGIS with the content in the production Portal for ArcGIS?

Is there a way to do some form of replication or back-up and restore?

Hi Dean,

> Is there a way to do some form of replication or back-up and restore?

For replication, please see this help topic:
About distributed collaboration—Portal for ArcGIS (10.6) | ArcGIS Enterprise 

For back-up and restore, please see this help topic:
ArcGIS Enterprise backups—Portal for ArcGIS (10.6) | ArcGIS Enterprise 

Hope this helps,

The DR tool will only work if the user-facing URLs, (the web context URL or web adaptor URL) for the Enterprise is identical bewteen where you take a backup and where you apply it, so it likely won't work for a test -> production type workflow. I'd suggest the Python API or collaboration.

Thanks everyone that is very useful. We will look into both the collaboration and cloning option to see what is most effective.
