Re: Ability to move a space between orgs

You're right. I can see why the ability to move a space is not in any
nearish term plans.

We'll probably look at creating a clone/copy solution and consider it a
long term investment.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Yes, moving gets stickier very quickly and precisely what one team wants
to have preserved across an org may differ depending on use case.
Service bindings, environment variables, routes, membership etc are tied
to particular spaces and orgs.
There are many implications to "moving" service instances, apps, etc to be
considered.

Have you thought about "cloning" a space?
I could imagine a plugin that could clone apps (names, bits, environment
variables) from one space to another.
Perhaps even moving routes.
Even creation of service instances and binding to similarly named apps
could be reasoned over.

We occasionally need to move spaces between orgs when our business
reorganizes. It would be great if we could atomically move spaces between
orgs.

It seems not difficult but when you look deeper things get stickier:
* Private Domains are owned by orgs
* Service access may be different between orgs
* New Organization scoped brokers may cause issues.

Thoughts on supporting moving a space between orgs? Could perhaps error
out if an issue like the ones above is detected?
