Export and import your Search dashboards

Export and import your Search dashboards

Update August 2015: It is not much easier to import or export your dashboards, it is the same interface as the Oozie workflows exporter.

 

Using Hue 3.8 or CDH5.4

20000013 is the id you can see in the URL of the dashboard. If you don’t specify –pks it will export all your dashboards.

./build/env/bin/hue dumpdata search.Collection --indent 2 --pks=20000013 --natural > data.json

Using Hue 3.7 or less

./build/env/bin/hue dumpdata search --indent 2 > data.json

 

then

./build/env/bin/hue loaddata data.json

 

And that’s it, the dashboards with the same IDs will be refreshed with the imported ones!

search-dashboard-list

 

Note:

If using CM, export this variable in order to point to the correct database:

HUE_CONF_DIR=/var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/-hue-HUE_SERVER-id
echo $HUE_CONF_DIR
export HUE_CONF_DIR

Where <id> is the most recent ID in that process directory for hue-HUE_SERVER.
