Unloading Data for Transportation

HI Community,

 

In the title really, we've been trying out Power BI locally and don't want to publish just yet to ensure data security.

 

Moving our concept models are has become a little tricky as data loaded into the pbix file inflate the file size greatly (as you would expect).

 

Is there a way to unload the data but retain the logic required to pull it in again? In this way I can pass the empty file and they can refresh it on their own pc.

 

Thanks,

 

Harry.

Yes.  Just go to File->Export-> Export to Template.   This will create a file that is less than a meg.  You can then give it to someone and as long as the source files are on a network drive and they have access to them, they then can load the data.
