How to save and export named configuration snapshot with API

Hi Folks,


I want to save and export new named configuration snapshot through API call.

I found the API but don't know whether it export the latest details or old one, In UI we have option to save and export the saved configuration but unable to find with API.

Can anyone help me if you already find out the way to export?


Also want to export Device group name but when i go to the API , it fetch all information including device name, it is really tough to fetch on Devicegroup.


Thanks in advance

Hi @SutareMayur 


I believe the below api will only export the configuration, Does it export latest configuration? 


like we mostly manually save the named configuration then export it
