SonarQube 6.3 Export Rules

I use SonnarQube 6.3 for some projects of mine and I need to update it to the latest version (8.1). I’m having problems with importing/exporting rules. I know the way to do this changed in the latest version and I’d like to know if there is any way to do this quickly.
The first screenshot shows a test i’ve done, including the same rules and exporting the file.!


Welcome to the community!

I don’t understand what these two things have to do with each other. Are you trying to back up your profiles before the upgrade? If so, you should know that there are unfortunately some things that aren’t included in the XML exports (rules from templates, and extended descriptions IIRC). Your best bet is to do the DB backup recommended in the upgrade docs.
