Migration from Existing Services to Blueprints

Hi there,

First of all, thanks for Render. It’s a good service and has been a lot more stable in the last years.

I’ve been looking for a way to migrate from existing services in the Settings / Dashboard to a Blueprint (Infrastructure as Code). I can’t find any information on this in the docs or in this community.

An automated way to “upgrade” or “export” a service would be great, but even just a migration guide to know every step of how to do it manually would be great.

Cheers,

Karl

Hi Karl,

Thanks for reaching out.

There isn’t currently an export feature to create a Blueprint/render.yaml from existing services. However, a feature like that is planned.

Currently, you can still create a render.yaml yourself to associate to existing services.

Matching the names/types of the services will be detected when the Blueprint first syncs and will show some information like:
Hope that helps
