GDPR introduces data portability - the right for a data subject to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided in a 'commonly used and machine readable format' and have the right to transmit that data to another controller.


This is a way to export all available data in order to more easily move to other platforms - if possible. I would suggest that Rocket Chat implements this as JSON export of all user data and make it an option in the Right to Access feature, keep it as simple as possible!

Solution (draft)

  • Admin option to enable it
  • Profile button to start the process
  • Method to loop all the user's subscriptions and create a file per room containing the conversation (all messages or user's messages only?) in machine format
    • Get all the attachments too
  • Notify via email with a link to download the zip containing the files
    • Store inside mongodb???
  • Only allow to carry out the process once per day
  • 24h of work
