How to export all details Collections


I recently started working on forest for my job and I would have liked to know if there was a way that would allow me to export all the fields of a collection. Currently when I export a collection it returns me a CSV table with only the visible fields but all the hidden fields of its not exported. I would like to do an export which would allow me to retrieve an array with all the fields of my collection even those hidden.

I’m working on the In-App Ruby on Rail version of forest admin.

Thank you in advance,

Hi @aurell04b !
Right now you can only make those fields visible and then export them, we don’t support exporting hidden fields because they are usually hidden for a reason :slight_smile:

I’ll push this as a feature request to our product team !

First thank you !
And will it be possible to do this by going through a smart action?


Hello @aurell04b

This is possible, yes. You can find an example of how to do it in our documentation. The example is in JavaScript, but you should be able to achieve the same thing in Ruby.
