Import a Database

  • Dark

Article summary


If you have an archived database connection file (e.g., ZIP) exported from Superset/Preset, then you can import it directly to Preset.

Let's see how this is done.

Select a File

In the Toolbar, hover your cursor over Settings and select Database Connections.

At the bottom of the dialog, select Import database from file.

Navigate and select a ZIP file on a local or network location.


Enter Password

In the Password field, enter a password for the uploaded database and then select Connect.

Note: Security Panel Settings

If your database requires completion of the Secure Extra (e.g., Google BigQuery) and/or Root Certificate (e.g., Apache Druid) fields in the AdvancedSecurity panel configuration, then these need to be added after the import is complete.


Overwrite Warning

If you are importing a file for a database that already exists, you will be prompted to confirm the process by entering the word overwrite before selecting Connect.
