  • Dev instance: If you are using an instance of the platform for developing and testing your flows, you can import a new flow through the Flows page. 

    Info

    NOTE: Unless your instance of the platform has been specifically configured to support deployment management, you are using a Dev instance of the platform.

    Info

    NOTE: If you are attempting to share a flow with other users on the same instance of the platform, you should use the sharing functions. See Overview of Sharing.

  • Prod instance: If you are importing a flow into a Production instance of the platform, you import it as a package through the Deployments page.

    Info

    NOTE: Deployment management is a feature that enables segmentation of platform usage between Dev instances and Prod instances. This feature must be enabled and configured. For more information, see Overview of Deployment Management.

 

Limitations

Imported flows do not contain the following objects:

  • Reference datasets
  • Samples 
  • Connections

    Info

    NOTE: Exported flows do not contain connections. If your flow relies on a connection to the source, you must create the connection in the new environment and create an import mapping rule to assign the local connection ID to the import package. Flows that do not require connections may not require remapping before import. See Define Import Mapping Rules.

    Info

    NOTE: If the flow's output object uses connections that are not used for importing datasets in the flow, the output is broken on import. Those outputs and their associated connections must be recreated in the environment into which the flow is imported.

...

Define import rules

Before you import a package, you may need to create import mapping rules to apply to your package. For example, if the Development data is stored in a different location than the Production data, you may need to create import rules to remap paths and connections to use to acquire the data from the Production environment.

For more information, see Define Import Mapping Rules. 

Import

Info

NOTE: You cannot import into a Dev instance if your account for the instance contains the Deployment role.

Info

NOTE: When you import a package, you import a ZIP file. You cannot import the contents of the ZIP. If your local environment automatically unzips ZIP files, please re-ZIP before you import.
