WPEngine's `.wpe-pull-ignore` not being respected when pulling in a remote site

Issue Summary

I’m current working on a website with 50GBs of images in the uploads directory, I know it’s bad (can’t change it now though). I’ve managed to push the .wpe-pull-ignore and .wpe-push-ignore files into the root app folder. However, when I attempt to pull from Local with my WPE API setup it tries to import EVERYTHING. Been bashing my head on this for a few days.

Probably going to move to a different tool, this has been a nightmare.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?

I don’t have other WPEngine sites so I can’t say.

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
