I’ve figured out the following. If I copied the field group and test the export again, all fields are included in the JSON file. After this I have to reconnect this field group with other field groups by including it as clone field. After this I test it again to export the field group and the error occurs. The JSOn file is missing the all the fields. I think this is a bug.
I have a annoying issue / bug with missing fields in the exported JSON file and generated PHP file. So it’s not possible for me to …
1. … export my existing field group and import it again to a other wordpress installation.
2. … use “include_once( get_template_directory() . ‘/inc/acf-field-groups.php’ );” to load the field groups from the generated PHP file instead of the JSON file for user which are working with a child theme.
