Ensure e-mails from Google Groups can be exported
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We may want to migrate from Google Groups at some point. Therefore we should be able to export the e-mail archives.

Event Timeline

Initially I couldn't find any way to export the e-mails in regular Goole Takeout (just as a user). This led to making full domain exports (partly due to confusing UI), which should be avoided.

When I now more properly read the instructions Takeout mentions that you need to be owner to get the complete data (albeit not very clearly). Apparently I wasn't that despite having created the group (I think). I tried downloading a test group and it looks to contain the correct data.

Lokal_Profil assigned this task to Sebastian_Berlin-WMSE.
Lokal_Profil moved this task from Waitin' to Done on the User-Sebastian_Berlin-WMSE board.

After this task was closed it became apparent that the function for exporting emails isn't reliable. See T309587#8133150 and on for how this failed for some groups and that there was no help from the support.
