[IMPORTANT] CommCare Data Export Tool Update

For anyone who uses the CommCare Data Export Tool

A bug was identified in all versions between 0.13.0 and 0.18.0 that has the
following impact:

Condition under which the bug manifests

Any export to a SQL database that fails part way or is cancelled before
completion and then restarted without specifying the ‘–since’ or
’–start-over’ command line parameters.


Under the above conditions the export tool will not continue the export
from where it left off but will instead skip ahead which could potentially
leave some data unexported.


Upgrade to version 0.18.1 and run the export with the '–start-over’
command line parameter to re-export all data.

Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.
