I'm afraid there isn't an easy way to do what you are asking today in the UI, although that doesn't mean we aren't interested in looking more into this. So let me ask some initial questions:
- What format would you like to export? is it just the CI's themselves that are in a given 'model'?
- Would you want this to be in the UI or an API call that let's you extract the model? (if API you might be able to make use of our graph walk api to do this today)

This should be possible with using spoon, but it will not be very easy to do...
thanks for your reply, here are the answers to your questions:
- a XML-File including all CI's in a model (e.g. SoftwareServer including Port information for a database or tomcat.. / Computersystems including IPEndpoints / Loadbalancers including IPEndpoints and Servicenames / ...) would be really helpful. It does not need to be one single file, one file per Class would also work i guess. We're at a point where we want to know whats possible, so if there's another format that's easier to export or some information is missing we would be fine with it too. The vision is to integrate our CMDB with our Operations monitoring
- it doesn't matter if it's in the UI or only possible via API call. I'll try the graph walk api that you mentioned. We're using CMDB 9.1.04, is the CMDBDRIVER-Tool still supported in this version?

Yes CMDBDRIVER is still supported, let me know how you get on, we'll look at the request to export a 'tree' as an XML construct.

Using CMDBGraphWalk you can query and then export the results, using CMDBDriver, or a JAVAAPI program.
