About Data Exports

A database may be configured to export one (or more) tables or an entire database from Amperity. Each data export must be assigned a unique name. A data export must be associated with a configured destination and must be added to an orchestration.

POLICY

A data export must be configured within a sandbox by a user who is assigned to the DataGrid Administrator policy, after which users assigned to the DataGrid Operator and Amp360 User policies may add the data export to orchestrations.

Add data export

Database tables and databases can be sent from Amperity as a data export. A data export is configured from the Customer 360 tab, and then added to an orchestration from the Destinations tab.

To add a data export

  1. From the Customer 360 tab click Configure Exports. This opens the Database Exports page.

  2. Click Create New Export. This opens the Add Export dialog box.

  3. Add the name of the data export, and then click Add. This will add a draft data export to the Database Exports page.

  4. Open the menu for the draft data export, and then select Edit.

  5. From the Database drop-down, select a database.

  6. From the Entities list, select one (or more) database tables to add to the data export.

    For a single table, click the table. For multiple tables, use click + command for each table to be selected. For all tables click the first table, hold shift, and then click the last table.
