This document outlines how to backup and restore your GitLab instance using Toolbox.
Backups created in a Helm-based installation can typically be restored in an Operator-based installation, and vice-versa.
These flows will be tested more extensively throughout the development of the Operator. See issue #320 for more information.
Note that environments that leverage external services for stateful components like PostgreSQL and Gitaly will typically be easier to migrate.
