Exporting an app

In Cloudera Data Visualization, you can export dashboards, apps, and other visual artifacts. When you export a whole app, the process captures all the dependencies, such as visuals, dashboards, datasets, and custom styles.

  1. Click VISUALS in the main navigation bar.
  2. Select the app that you want to export.
    This updates the action buttons available in the top right corner of the preview area and the Export button becomes active.
  3. Click Export.
    This action exports the app to your default download folder.

    You can also use the Suppmental menu of the app tile to initiate the export.

    The Export Visual Artifact modal window appears.

    In this example, the Sample App is used.

    The export file includes the definition of the app and any subgroups that it may have, the visuals and dashboards in the app, and all necessary datasets. When available, the export file also includes custom style dependencies.

  4. Optional: Change the name of the file you are exporting.
  5. Click Export.
    This starts the download of the export file to your default download folder. You can confirm the success of the export by finding the file on your system.
