Hi Julius,


Thanks for getting in touch with us on this. The Yellowfin application allows you to export it's internal configurations (datasources, views, reports) from within the Admin Console. Step-by-step instructions for completing this process can be found in this article.


This process does not export the following:

  • External Databases
  • Users
  • Roles
  • User Groups
  • Broadcasts


If you looking to test a newer version of Yellowfin on a separate instance, we would recommend taking a backup of your existing Yellowfin database and restoring it on the new instance. If this is what you are working on and would like some additional help on this, please let me know.


Cheers,

Neal

Hi Julius,


Happy to help. I will mark this a completed, but please let me know if you need any more assistance with this - in particular if you are trialing an updated version to ensure everything works as intended.


Cheers,
