An exported flow can be imported into Trifacta® SaaS.
You cannot import flows that were exported before Release 6.8.
NOTE: You cannot import flows into a version of the product that is earlier than the one from which you exported it. For example, if you develop a flow on free Trifacta Wrangler, which is updated frequently, you may not be able to import it into other editions of the product, which are updated less frequently.
Imported flows do not contain the following objects:
NOTE: Depending on the import environment, some objects in the flow definition may be incompatible. For example, the connection type may not be valid, or a datasource may not be reachable. In these cases, the objects may be removed from the flow, or you may have to fix a reference in the object definition. After import, you should review the objects in the flow to verify.
- Reference datasets
Imported datasets that are ingested into backend storage for Trifacta SaaS may be broken after the flow has been imported into another instance. These datasets must be reconnected to their source. You cannot use import mapping rules to reconnect these data sources. This issue applies to the following data sources:
- Microsoft Excel workbooks and worksheets. See Import Excel Data.
NOTE: When you import a flow, you must import a ZIP file containing the JSON definition.
- Export the flow from the source system. See Export Flow.
- Login to the import system, if needed.
