Export EDMs

Export EDM data sources as database artifacts


The Risk Modeler API enables you to create backups of cloud-based EDMs and download those backups from the Intelligent Risk Platform.

EDMs may be downloaded as database artifacts in the BAK, CSV, MDF or PARQUET file formats. Downloaded database artifacts may be imported into on-premise SQL Server instances.

Step 1: Download EDM as database artifact

The Manage EDM operation supports two administrative tasks: the creation of an EDM on the Intelligent Risk Platform or the downloading of an EDM as a database artifact from the Inteligent Risk Platform. Each task is identified by an operation type that is specified as a query parameter.

The datasource and operation query parameters are required:

curl --location --request POST 'https://{host}/riskmodeler/v1/datasources?datasourcename=edm_name&operation=DOWNLOAD_EDM' \
--header 'Authorization: {api_key}' \
--data-raw ''

The operation the following query parameters:

  • The required operation query parameter specifies the action taken on the EDM (one of CREATE or DOWNLOAD_EDM). In this case, we want to download the EDM, so we have specified a value of DOWNLOAD_EDM. If DOWNLOAD_EDM is specified, the operation creates a backup of the specified EDM in the specified format.
  • The required datasourcename query parameter identifies the EDM to download.
  • The format parameter specifies file format of the exported data. One of BAK, CSV, MDF or PARQUET.
  • The optional filename query parameter specifies the name of the database artifact. The name of the database artifact must be name that is valid for an EDM. Valid characters: 0-9, A-Z, a-z, _ (underscore), - (hyphen), and ' ' (blank space). Maximum length is 80 characters.
  • The optional servername query parameter specifies the name of the server instance that hosts the EDM. If no server instance is specified, the tenant's primary EDM is assumed.
  • The optional sqlversion query parameter specifies compatbility of BAK or MDF database artifacts. One or 2014 or 2019.

If successful, returns a 202 Accepted HTTP response and initates a DOWNLOAD_EDM job on the workflow engine. The job ID number is returned in the Location HTTP header.

Step 2: Retrieve database artifact location

The Get workflow or operation operation enables you to request information about the status of a specific job.

To retrieve information about a job, specify the job ID as a path parameter. Use the job ID, you retrieved from the Location HTTP header in Step 1.

curl --request GET \
     --url https://{host}/riskmodeler/v1/workflows/5673 \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: XXXXXXXXXX'

A successful response returns the Workflow object, which provides detailed information about this job including the submitTime, startTime, type, and status. When the status is set to FINISHED, the database artifact is available for download.
