Exporting an application

In CDP 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 contains the visuals or dashboards for export.

    In this example, the 'Migrate' app is used.

  3. Select all artifacts in the app by clicking the selection box at the top of the list.

    This updates the menus at the top, and shows the (suppmental) menu.

  4. In the (suppmental) menu across the top, click Export App.

    The Export Visual Artifacts modal window appears, with a default file name of the type appp_random_number.

  5. Optional: Change the name of the file.

    To see what visual artifacts are exported, click Show Details.

    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.

  6. 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.
