Common Data Service backup

What is the recommended method for backing up CDS DBs? The only option I saw was exporting data into Excel, can this be automated?


Is there versioning in CDS?

Re: Common Data Service backup



My suggestion.

- Create an Excel in Dropbox / OneDrive / Google Drive (Dropbox is the fastest, within few seconds).

- Create Field Titles exactly similar of the CDS


So, whenever you wish to back up, just use

- Insert A gallery (with all the data as from CDS)...make it INVISIBLE

- Use ForAll and Patch to save in batch.

You have wish to have condition so that it will not duplicate.


Hope this gives you ideas.


Have a nice day.
