Export Plan

This section provides an overview on how to export plans from one environment to another environment as a ZIP file.

You can export a plan from the Alteryx Analytics Cloud from one system to another system as a zip file. The exported zip file contains a JSON file for the plan and JSON files for each referenced asset. The plan and its tasks are exported into the plan definition file. When you export the plan ZIP file, a snapshot of the plan is taken at the time of export.

Plan exports are useful for:

  • Backing up the work in progress on your plans

  • Archiving of completed development work


  • The plan file does not include theplan schedules and their associated overrides.
