Exporting and Restoring Pipeline Node Configuration

edgeCore version: 4.4.1

This feature enables you to backup and restore the configuration of any pipeline node as a JSON file.
Both options are accessed by clicking the three dots in the top-right corner of a node.

It is recommended that you use Partial Backups to backup and restore nodes in a pipeline, but there are rare advanced cases where it is necessary to backup a single node. This is how that is accomplished.


For the purpose of this example, we are going to use the advanced configuration in a chart visualization. You can watch the video walkthrough here.

The first thing we are going to do is export the wind data from the chart. Upon clicking the Export Configuration option, a JSON file is downloaded. Having done that, we are going to access the chart again. In the Advanced Config tab, we are going to make some changes to the following code:

  "chart": {
    "type": "spline",
    "scrollablePlotArea": {
      "minWidth": 600,
      "scrollPositionX": 1

“type” is going to be “line”, and we are going to add “backgroundColor”: “#ede3d8”;
After observing the data in the preview, we are going to save those changes and close the chart. Since we have previously created a backup of the chart and the original advanced configuration, we can restore it if we no longer want the changes we made above (different type and background color).
We are going to access the chart again to restore its previous configuration, and upon clicking Restore Configuration, a pop-up will be displayed where we are going to upload the JSON file we have previously exported. In the Advanced Config tab, we see the original configuration, that is, the code above.



When you export the configuration of a certain node, you can restore it only in a node of the same type.
For example, if you have exported the configuration of a chart (like we have in the example above), and you try to restore it in a CSV feed (or any node that is not a chart), you will not be able to do so and the following notification will be displayed:
