Fixtures are SQL queries that use a real production data set to populate the development database. Since this contains personal information, access should be restricted. Fixtures may be obtained (through a secure method) from an Ion admin if you are developing for Ion.


Once you get a zipped fixtures file, unzip the file to a fixtures directory in your main work directory. Within the main work directory, run ./scripts/ to import the fixtures. This process may take some time.


To export fixtures from production, you should SSH to root on ion. Navigate to the main directory, make a directory called fixtures, and run ./scripts/ Your fixtures should be populated in the fixtures directory and can now be zipped for transfer.
