Automate or script import and export integration
Question Asked
Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to automate or script the export and import process from YF. Currently, we have a development server and a staging server. The development server is for the report developer to create or modify existing Views and Report. Every week, she will export these Views and Reports into an xml file. The QA will then import these Views and Reports to the staging server.

Would it be possible to somehow automate this process through script, web service or Java coding so that we can reduce the time from going though the YF user interface when perform import and export?

Thanks

Hi Mentor,

Apologies for the delayed response.

We have recently creating a web-service import/export function, though it hasn't been documented as yet.

We are hoping to have this documented in the coming days.

David

Answer
Hi Mentor,

This feature is only is Yellowfin 6.1 .
We have just completed a web-service list guide which can be downloaded here.

The guide will list all available web-services for importing/exporting.
You can also get example JSP's for importing/exporting here:
The above zip file contains;
ws_admin_listcontent.jsp. This returns YF objects.
ws_import. This performs the actual import.

Please let me know if you run into any issues with this.

Regards,
David

Hi Dave,

It is good to hear YF supports webservice for import and export. Unfortunately we are still doing development using 6.0. and will not likely to upgrade to 6.1 for awhile.

Good morning, work with Yellowfin for a year and must automate routine updating of graphics and panels, I need to know how to use the ws_admin_import.jsp, where they have to enter this file and how chamalo on the screen.

My situation is as follows:

no data yellowfin have a seat and got another with information and various graphic want to update the original yellowfin (no data) without using the import function within the system.

Edit the file with the hostname and port according your YF server.

Copy the file here C:\Yellowfin\appserver\webapps\ROOT

Run the file in your browser: http://yourserver:port/ws_admin_import.jsp
