This guide was developed by a member of our Professional Services team, Stony Smith. It details the steps required to prepare graphs in LAE for efficient migration to Analyze.
Note: customers must be on LAE v6.1.4 in order to migrate to Data3Sixty Analyze.
When preparing BRGs to move to Analyze, we suggest that you “clean out” any libraries that might not actually be needed.
- Open your Graph
- Go to Graph/Edit Base Libraries
- Delete all the references there
- Save the BRG
- Reopen the BRG
- Look at Edit Base Libraries again… if the library came back, it’s actually in use and does need to be uploaded.
Then inside of Analyze:
You need to import any libraries before you import your main BRG.
Our recommendation is:
- First, you MUST ensure that EVERYONE is using the SAME copy of the library BRG – this becomes very important. Pass a fresh copy of the LibraryBRG across the team if you need to. (see longer explanation below)
- Create a new folder within the Public Folders.. I call mine simply “Nodes”, but you could use something closer to the LibraryBRG name
- Go to Settings/Library Paths/EditLibraryPaths
- On the Public Folder, turn ON “Search Subfolders” for the Public Documents as in the picture below.
- Then, import the Library BRG into the new folder you built.
- Then, import the existing main graph BRG
Inside of a LibraryBRG, you will find a unique UUID. When you import a library, all of the nodes are associated with the UUID of the LibraryBRG that they came from.
If two team members have copies of the Library.BRG that have different UUIDs, then Analyze will require both libraries to be imported
When you import a (main) graph, you get ONE chance to associate node names to the UUIDs of the library (only happens during initial import)
Even though the names may appear to be the same, you’ll end up with duplicated nodes, and it’s very difficult to resolve it back down to a single copy.
