Version 2

Intro 

You can use Domo's DataSet Copy connector to copy data from one Domo instance to another. You do this in the Data Center.

The DataSet Copy DataSet connector is a "File" connector, meaning it retrieves files and outputs them to Domo. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other File connectors by clicking File in the toolbar at the top of the window.

There are two versions of this connector, a regular and an advanced version. The only difference between these is that the advanced version asks you for the username and password for the Domo instance you are copying from. Because of this, we do not provide separate documentation for the advanced version.

This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the DataSet Copy connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites 

To copy data from one instance to another, you must have the following:

  • The access token for the DataSet you are copying data from. This token belongs to the owner of the DataSet you are copying data from. If you have an "Admin" security role, you can generate access tokens; otherwise, you need to request an access token from an administrator. Make sure the token is not expired. For information about generating access tokens, see Managing Access Tokens.

  • The Domo instance containing the DataSet you want to copy. For example, if your Domo URL was https://abc123.domo.com, the instance would be abc123.

  • The DataSource ID of the data you want to copy. You can find the DataSource ID by opening the Details view for the DataSet in the Data Center. The ID is the number in the URL following "/datasources/".  

     

  • Credentials (username and password) for the Domo instance you are copying from (Advanced version only).

Configuring the Connector

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the DataSet Copy Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane 

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to create a DataSet Copy account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Username (Advanced version only)

Enter the username for the Domo instance you are copying from.

Password (Advanced version only)

Enter the password for the Domo instance you are copying from.

Access Token

Enter the developer token for the DataSet you are copying data from.

Domo Instance

Enter the Domo instance containing the data you want to copy. (In the advanced version of the connector, this parameter is found in the "Details" pane.)

For more information about obtaining the above credentials, see "Prerequisites," above.

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new DataSet Copy DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

In this pane you enter details about the DataSet you want to copy.

Field

Description

DataSource ID

Enter the DataSource ID of the data you want to copy. For information about obtaining a DataSource ID, see "Prerequisites," above.

Other Panes

For information about the remaining sections of the connector interface, including how to configure scheduling, retry, and update options, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
