export askbot live settings in order to be used in another environment

I was wondering if it is possible to export my settings/configurations from django admin console in order to use them (import) in another askbot environment.

By this way, I could save time since I will not need to put them again manually. Do you know if something like that is supported?

It's not currently supported just like this but you can do the following:

python dumpdata livesettings > livesettings.json

and on your target machine

python loaddata livesettings.json
