Importing and Exporting ElastiCube Data

  • Dark
    Light

ElastiCube data can be transferred to different machines. This is useful when you are deploying on a new machine or need to transfer the data to a different server.

The transferred data is stored in a compressed ecdata file. The file contains all of the information contained in an ElastiCube Data folder (including the source data), and is used by the Sisense Server Console to build a new ElastiCube.

To export data:

  1. In the Windows start menu, scroll to Sisense > Sisense Server Console.

  2. Click on the relevant ElastiCube .

  3. Click Stop to stop the specific ElastiCube (not the entire server).

  4. Click Export. Enter a name for the file you are saving, and click Save.

To import data:

  1. In the Windows start menu, scroll to Sisense > Sisense Server Console.

  2. Click the import ecdata file icon .

  3. Select the location of the ecdata file and click Open.

  4. A window will appear showing the import progress. Once complete, the new ElastiCube s will be added to the list of existing ElastiCube s. Make sure the ElastiCube is running before accessing it.

Note:

You can also transfer data by copying the folder where Sisense stores the data locally, instead of exporting and importing the compressed file.
