At the point where your field group is create in PHP and before you call the acf function to register it, json encode it and save it to a file.
$path = dirname(__FILE__).'/'.$group['key'].'.json'; $json = acf_json_encode($group); $handle = fopen($path); fwrite($handle, $json, strlen($json)); fclose($handle);
that will save the file in the same folder on the server as the script you put this in. Then import the field group from that file.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
