Question about importing queries


#1

Hi all,

I’m running Redash on AWS and I need to import queries into Redash from another software suite. I am currently using Redash for business purposes.

I was pointed to the query_export.py script that Arik wrote and then I saw the modified version of the script for importing. The only issue is that I am unsure as to how to utilize this script. Is this script placed on the machine where Redash is located?

Thanks,

Nick

The script needs to be placed on a machine that meets the following criteria:

  1. It has HTTP access to Redash.
  2. It has Python and the requests Python library available.

The machine Redash is run from happens to meet these, but usually you can run it from your work machine or any other.
