An export job is triggered and added to the Quartz Scheduler. You can check the status of the job on the Admin Tools page under Process Job Monitor → Monitor Job. Once the export job is completed, you can download the object definition package using the Download Status link. The object definition package is a zip file with an individual CSV file for each individual object definition entities structure.
