Configuring data-sources: Merging data-sources
We recommend using a manual sourceKey if you need to re-generate a database with existing user data (visualizations etc.), or when the hostname and port number of your data-source are likely to change after the first connection to Linkurious Enterprise.
Alternatively, you have the possibility to merge the data-sources directly from the data-source management page with the following steps:
From the dashboard, go to the Admin > Data-sources management menu
The data-source to be removed should be the old data-source now marked as offline because it has been replaced with the freshly generated data-source.
On the resulting modal, select the new data-source then click on the merge button.
This action will irreversibly remove any data associated with the old data-source.
As a result, the following objects from the old data-source will be merged in the new data-source:
- Graph Queries
- Custom Actions
- Custom groups
For security reasons existing custom groups will be merged with none of the access rights from the old data-source. You will need to manually re-assign access rights to those groups after the merge.
The following objects will be ignored and removed:
- Builtin groups
- Schema configuration
- Data-source configuration
