Publishing from Alpana Server

Data Sources can be published from Alpana Designer.
Alternately, you can publish a Data Source .alps file directly to the Server.

Click the Add datasource button :

DataSource Add click

This opens the Upload New dialog :

DataSource Add dialog

Click the Select File button to browse your filesystem for a datasource .alps file.
Fill-in a Name and optionally a Description.

When you click the Save button, the DataSource is published.

Actions menu

Each published DataSource has a set of actions available.
To list those actions, open the datasource menu next to the DataSource’s name :

DataSource menu

Some of those actions are detailed in the corresponding chapter :

  • Download
  • Manage permissions
  • Versions history
  • Update
  • Delete


This downloads the datasource .alps file.
This allows for example to import it in Alpana Designer.


This opens the Edit dialog to update the DataSource’s name and description.

You can also upload a new widget .alps file to replace the current one.
If you do so, this will create a new version, so you can input a Version Comment.

DataSource Update dialog


This deletes the selected Widget.
