Exporting a database
You'll find out how to export all your data stored on each one of your SlicingDice's physical databases.
Exporting data from your database
To export the data from a given database you should access the Databases section of the SlicingDice's control panel. Then select the database you want to export from the list of databases and click on the Export data option on the Actions column.
After clicking on the Export data option you'll be able to see a pop-up where you can define the following properties:
- Dimension: Defines the dimension that will have its data exported.
- Select Columns: Defines the columns that you want to retrieve data from.
- Time Range: Defines a time range to retrieve the data. The time range is specific about when the data is registered in the database and is not based on time-series data.
Export data just from physical dimensions
Notice that you can only export data from your physical dimensions. The dimensions created through external sources connections can't be exported.
After clicking on the Confirm button you'll receive a success message and that's it! You'll receive an email containing one or more links to download your database as a CSV file. It can take a few minutes or several hours depending on the size of your database.
Download links expiration!
The download links containing your CSV files sent to your email expires in 7 days.
