Import a json dataflow config

Hello everyone.

I created a dataflow in a Power BI workspace. This workspace is connected the SQL Server in Azure.

Now I want transfer this dataflow to another workspace. Is it possible? I exported the dataflow to a Json file but I couldn't find where import this file.

Anybody knows how to do it?

regards,

Marcelo.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on my researching, PowerBI dataflow haven't provided a place to import the configure json file.

Hi @TeigeGao.

 

Thank you so much, but It's a bad news!

 

Is there an estimate for this functionality?

@Anonymous Did you find any solution for that ?

Dataflow - Import Model.PNGDataflow - Import Json.PNG

 

There is an option in dataflows to Import Model, which then presents you to select a json file.

Hi @danno .

 

Thanks for your response.

 

When I needed import my model, the import model didn't exist.

Hi, did you actually try this though ?  I've tried it and nothing happens after selecting the JSON that was previously exported and clicking OPEN.  Maybe you have to modify the JSON with a new unique dataflow name ??

Hi @frano72 .

 

I didn't try this. As I said to @danno, when I needed this option didn't exist.

 

I recreated the flow with the same name in another workspace.

1. change model.json file exported from dataflow to a different name, if you don't want to delete the old one. 

2. Change AllowNativeQueries attribute in model.json to false if it's true.

Hi @Anonymous !

 

Unfortunately not.
I had to recreate the dataflow in my new workspace.
