A Data Source can be exported to a file with format *.alps .

This DataSource.syds file contains the definition of the Data Source and all the dependent Connections, including their credentials.

This is useful for splitting roles in Dashboard creation :

  • User1 needs to make a dashboard but doesn’t have the skill or credentials to prepare data
  • User2 is skilled in IT/SQL/data/… and has the credentials to access the data, but has no process knowledge and won’t know how to make the Dashboard. She creates and shares a DataSource.alps file to User1
