Deployment of VDTs

Hi there,
I was wondering if there is already a solution to the following scenario:
We are working on an internal instance and are developing a “data-product” with test-data. Then I want to deploy this state of the data-product to a customer instance.
I then initialize my backend workflows with the customer data, meaning I create all necessary datatables from the customer data. However we are also using VDTs a lot.
How can I now transfer the VDTs based on certain datatables from the develop-instance to the customer-instance without overriding my datatables, that were initialized with customer-data, with the test-data from the export of our develop-instance.

TLDR: Is there a way to just transfer/update the VDTs without the need of also transferring actual datatables?


maybe, you can use Python SDK to collect SQL queries of your VDT on the internal instance, and again using Python SDK you could create VDTs on the customer’s instance:

Thanks for your answer, we are already collecting the VDT-queries, however it is not possible to access the customer-instance easily via the internet.

So I guess there is no way to automate the manual step of setting up the VDTs (or doing another manual step like copying the query-definitions into a python-processor on the customer’s ONE DATA instance). :frowning:
