transferring tools/reference genomes from one galaxy instance to another

Hi. I was wondering if there is a streamline way to transfer the tools installed on one galaxy instance to another instance. I have been working on a galaxy instance for testing and we are now ready to migrate to our production galaxy both of which we are running on an HPC. Is there a streamline way to transfer the tools on the dev server to our prod server without having to re-install all the tools individually? Thanks.

We have made a tool for this called Ephemeris. You can use it to download a list of all tools from an instance and then automatically install all of them in the new one, training is here: https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/topics/admin/tutorials/tool-management/tutorial.html

Reference genomes are slightly different, but I believe you can move them by copying all the required configuration and data files. Let us know if you need help with that.
