Advice on migrating from DB-less to DB

Hello there,
We’ve had an influx of API consumers recently and our DB-less config has become unmaintainable. I was just wondering if there was a reccomended guide for migrating to a DB model? I’ve considered using decK to dump the existing config, spinning up a local Kong instance pointed at the eventual prod Postgresql instance, and loading the decK config, but its occurred to me that that might have unforseen changes sync’d into the database that we don’t want persisted in production.

The resources currently configured are mostly rate-limit/key-auth plugins (~1k) as k8s resources. And a single service configured through a Kong Ingress.

Edit: Everything is currently managed thru the official Helm chart, which seems a lot more streamlined for DB-less than DB.
