ArangoDB v3.12 is under development and not released yet. This documentation is not final and potentially incomplete.

arangorestore

arangorestore is a command-line client tool to restore backups to ArangoDB servers

arangorestore can restore dumps created by arangodump and is therefore its counterpart.

If you want to import data in formats like JSON or CSV, see arangoimport instead.

arangorestore can restore selected collections or all collections of a backup, optionally including system collections. One can restore the structure, i.e. the collections with their configuration with or without data. Views can also be dumped or restored (either all of them or selectively).
