This export will include the chosen space metadata sets and fields.

Optionally, you can check "Export metadata values". The metadata values added to individual pages/blog posts in this space will only be exported, if you check this option.

When the export has been created successfully, click the "Download export" button to download the created .json file directly in your browser.
