As needed, you can export a flow from  Trifacta Wrangler Enterprise. An exported flow is stored in a ZIP file that contains all objects needed to use the flow in any instance of that platform that can access the flow's sources.

NOTE: Only the flow owner can export a flow.

Exported flows can be imported into the same system or different systems. Flow export is useful for:

  • Backups of work in progress

    You cannot import flows that were exported from a different edition, release, or build of the product.

  • Archiving of completed development work
  • Migrating flows from one instance to another
  • Deployment of work to Production environments
