Dear Daniel,
as part of the Backup&Restore procedure I am investigating a way to
export/import part of the GeoNode data.

WARNING: All this work is in progress, so at this time there is nothing
ready to use.

The idea is the following one:

1. Providing to the user a management command to backup the GeoNode
catalog. The whole catalog or part of it.

- This will make use of the "fixtures" and there should be a way to provide
somehow a query or a list of keys to store a subset of the layers.
- Backup the GeoServer data.

2. Providing to the user a management command to restore the GeoNode
catalog. The whole catalog or part of it.

- The command will use saved fixtures to restore GeoNode data.
- Restore the GeoServer data.

As a first implementation there will be the possibility to save the whole
catalog as a set of Json fixtures.

For you specific use case, the possibility would be to take the Layers JSON
and preserve "only" the layers you want to restore.

On GeoServer side you will need to get the layers data manually. This is
possible simply by getting the files from the GEOSERVER_DATA_DIRECTORY:

 - Get the saved shapefiles from the upload subfolder
 - Get the catalog metadata from workspace/geonode subfolder
 - Get the styles SLDs and XMLs from styles subfolder
 - Reload the catalog from the admin interface or restart GeoServer.

Best Regards,
Alessio Fabiani.
