Export chaos experiments

Chaos experiments can be exported to save them for later use. Although simply creating or running an experiment using the Chaos Studio saves it to be later accessed through the Chaos Experiments sidebar option, you can also download the experiment as a manifest file to your machine or save it in any chaos hub.

Download experiment manifest file

  • To download the manifest file for an experiment, select the Chaos Experiments sidebar option. You can access all the experiments that have been created or run in the past.

  • To export an experiment, select the icon against the name of the experiment. Select Download Experiment. This downloads the experiment file to your machine.

    Download Experiment Manifest

  • You can directly upload this manifest file while creating a new experiment to use it as a template for the new experiment. Otherwise, a better way to save, manage, and distribute the experiments as templates is to use chaos hubs.

Add an experiment to chaos hub

  • To add an experiment to chaos hub, select the icon against the name of the experiment.

  • Select Add to Chaos Hub. Then, add an experiment name, optionally a description and a category tag, and choose the chaos hub to add the experiment to from the list of added chaos hubs.

    Add Experiment to ChaosHub

  • Select Save. Now, you should be able to see this experiment added to your chaos hub. You can access it and use it as a template for your new experiments.
