Can you export a DocType including its configuration (fields) and import it in another ERPNext instance?

I have created a DocType in a test system and configured fields, scripted validations and dependencies. Now I want to take over these results in the prod system. What is the best and easiest way to do this? Can I do it via export and import?

Just linked this link at another thread. But if you want to manage your customizations I believe that this is the best way to do it. So you still can update your Frappe/erpnext.

No, you will have to build an app and install the app in new instance.

What you can do from UI is

  • Export custom fields in any standard DocType as a CSV file
  • Upload the CSV file in another instance to get the custom fields.
