Sync a project between two different exploration instances

theuncle Registered Posts: 3 ✭✭✭


I have multiple instances of Dataiku exploration node, is there a way to export a bundle from one instance and import it to another ?

As far as i know, importing bundles works only on automation nodes.

any help?

Operating system used: centos

    Hi @theuncle

    Thanks for writing in! Indeed, bundles are meant to be deployed to the Automation node.

    If you are referring to the Design node and your goal is to export projects to other design nodes, you may do so by exporting your project from the source instance and importing it onto the target instance.

    This can be done manually through the UI (Source: Project homepage > Actions > Export this project) and (Target: DSS Homepage > +New Project > Import project). It can also be done via the Python API.

    I've added sample code below for reference and the reference documents can be found at the following link:

    import dataiku
    client = dataiku.api_client()
    dss_projects = client.list_project_keys()
    project = client.get_project('project-key')
    dir = '/path/to/dir'
    project.export_to_file(dir + '')

    If you have any questions, please let us know.

    Thank you @JordanB

    Does importing projects overrides old project settings ? let say In target instance we have project A that is shared with project B, when importing project A does it keep the old shared datasets metadata ?

    Also I am wondering, would it work if I sync the projects File-system wise (e.g. Rsync)?
