    Hi Buddy-Dev Team,

    I’ve just tried to export the personal data of a member. Profile > Settings > Data Export. The export worked properly. But it is difficult to read the file.
    1) How can I (a user) read a *.json file?

    Best wishes

    Hello Gisela,

    Thank you for posting. You can use any online JSON online editor. Please refer to the following one:

    or you can use similar editors

    Hi Ravi,

    Thanks – I’ve tried it – but it still seems very difficult to read. There is such a huge number of information without a clear structure. I’ve transferred it to xml, there were too much information which is of no relevance for the user.

    Could it be possible to disable the tab in the Profile > settings > Export Data. Maybe with the BuddyPress User Profile Tabs Creator Pro

    Or is there any possibility to filter or moderate the exported data. E.G. all the tokens are of no interest.

    I have disabled the forums Tab with this Profile-Tabs Creator – does it also work for Settings-Tabs? It worked with the forums tab but not with blog-post.

    Best wishes

    Hi Gisela,
    Thank you for the reply.

    1. The export files are not for human consumption. They are there to allow data portability(in case someone wishes to write a parser to move form one platform to another).

    2. Yes, you can disable the tab using profile tab pro or here is a snippet

    3. Not sure what do you mean by moderation but as admin, you can approve/reject the requests in admin.

    4. Yes, the profile tabs pro works for settings.

    Regards

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks a lot for your and the others team members great support.

    I’ve added a Code in the child’s functions.php – as long as the export is not for human consumption – I think it will not be necessary. I thought this is an export in accordance to the GDP that users can request a report about the data stored about them.

    I imagine that it could be of interest in the European area to offer the users an option to get a report about their personal data stored on the webSite.

    Best Wishes

    Hi Gisela,
    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes, the data export is aimed at GDPR but json files are not intended for normal end user consumption.

    Hi Brajesh,

    yes, but the GDPR is focussed on normal end user. They should be able to get information about all data stored of them.
