How to Export a Plan along with all version history

    ​I would like to know if there is any option available in Spectrum Designer or CLI to export a Plan with entire version history in one shot.

    For Example: Let us assume I have a Job 'ProcessData' in Spectrum Server A. I have published it's version 7.0.1.
    Now I want to migrate Job 'ProcessData' from Server A to Server B with entire version history 1.0.0 to 7.0.1 along with Version history comments.

    At present it I have two options:
    Option 1: Take backup of spectrum Server A and deploy this to Server B. But this will copy all plans/jobs not just 'ProcessData'.
    So this does not make sense when we need to migrate only few plans with version history.

    Option 2: Export each version separately from Designer/CLI from Server A. Note down version history comments.
    Then Import each version (lower to higher - 1.0.0. to 7.0.1), add version history comments.
    In this process we actual lose date time stamp of the version creation. also this process works only where we have fewer number of version.

    I am looking for a way to migrate a subset up server backup option where we can select items to backup for migration from server A to B. Like when we invoke server backup - it could present a page presenting option for Full / Partial. In partial we could have option to choose each item like:
    1. Data source
    2. Flows/Services (with version history or latest only)
    3. Schedule
    4. Execution history
    5. Notification settings

    Do let us know if we have such functionality already present in any specific version.
