    Oracle DVD or OAC : Sharing a Data Flow
    Share/Export Data Flow


    do you know if a data flow can be shared in OAC ? or export in DVD ?

    I don't see anyway to to that ...

      Data Flows are part of 5.1 snapshots.

    • loret gael
      Thanks Christian. Do you how to share a data flow between users ?
      • Christian Berg

        Sorry I misread your question. I thought you meant "export to a different environment".

        Right now you can't share data flows.You can share the data sets which are the output of a data flow.

    • loret gael
      Ok. I Hope this feature will be in a future release

      Hi Loret, Christian

      there is actually a way to share Data-Flows today, not ultra-intuitive but robust. When you build a dataflow that you want to export and share, simply do this :

      - run the Data-Flow and create a dataset with it (even if 'dummy' data only)

      - create a project on this resulting dataset (even a 'dummy' project with only one trivial viz)

      - Export this project as .dva file.

      Anybody deploying this .dva project will have the Data-Flow (or Data-Flows) deployed on his environment. This will also include the definitions of source datasets and respective connections of the Data Flow (potentially lots of items).

      Let me know if not what you meant

      Ah yes that works! Thanks Philippe I hadn't thought about the DVA approach.

    • loret gael

      Great !!! It works !!!


      Many thanks

      Keep in mind a new capability of exporting/importing only dataflows will ship with OAC 5.4 which is only a few days away at this point.
