Visualizing .json Backup Tool Output

First I just want to say thank you for creating the backup tool with full support for attachments!

The tool is great, however my organization doesn’t have the time to develop our own visualization tool to make use of the backup files. Converting the json files to csv hasn’t been useful for tasks.json, especially with relating the comments and images/files within comments on tasks. It’s technically only a “data backup” of files that exist within our organization’s account. However, we would like to be able to use this backup of data to browse through previously closed/completed projects and folders.

I’ve tried a few different methods of visualizing the json files, but even with nested boxes it all doesn’t make sense and is full of IDs instead of actual task/comments/details etc. The entire collection of attachments only comes in a single folder all jumbled together.

I’m sure there has to be a way to take the existing browser display and then a large it to run locally on a persons machine with our backup files pasted somewhere for the html/whatever files to pull from. Ideally we would have an offline backup that displays in a web browser simulating the way a task displays with the comment history and relevant attachments.

If you would like to open a dialogue with me on ways to approach this please reach out. My organization has around 2000 tasks existing in just our US branch of our Wrike server, being able to use our backups as an actual backup is crucial for us.

Cheers,

Andy Norris

I agree with this request. A simple JSON viewer is a must

We require the same thing as well. A read only tool to query legacy data.

 

Thanks!

Agreed, has anyone within the Wrink organization looked into this?

Hey again Henrik Lyder! I don't have any news on this from the team, but I raised a ticket for you in the other thread - let's see if our Support team could advise with this.

We are in need of the same kind of solution. Is there any progress or information update?

Hi Paul Forde welcome to the Community! 🙂

Currently, the team isn't planning to add this to their roadmap, but I'd like to mention BI Export here - it lets you export your account’s data for future import to third-party analytics tools (e.g. PowerBI or Qlik). Please note that it's available on the Enterprise subscription.
