Use ThoughtSpot Scripting Language to modify a Worksheet, View, Table, Pinboard, or Answer in a flat-file format. Then you can migrate the object to a different cluster, or restore it to the same cluster.

To work with Scriptable Worksheets, Views, Tables, Answers, and Pinboards in ThoughtSpot, you can download these objects to a flat file in .tsl format, modify it, and subsequently upload this file either to the same cluster, or to a different cluster. To learn how to export, change, and update Worksheets, Views, Tables, Answers, and Pinboards, see Scriptability.

Syntax of the Worksheet TSL file

The TSL file for Scriptable Worksheets has a specific syntax.

See the Parameters section for details about the keywords used in this example.

You may not see each of these parameters in your own TSL files, depending on whether each variable is explicitly defined. For example, if you do not have any filters on your Worksheet, the filters parameter does not appear. You can add that variable to the TSL file to specify filters for your Worksheet.

format_pattern
The format pattern string that controls the display of a number, date, or currency column

headline_aggregation
Specifies the type of headline aggregation. Can be COUNT, COUNT_DISTINCT, SUM, MIN, MAX, AVERAGE, or TABLE_AGGR.
id
Specifies the id of an object, such as table_paths, formula.
For Answers, id refers to how the column appears in the query. For example, if you sorted by Quarter in your search, from the Commit Date column, the id of the column is Quarter(Commit Date). Refer to Components of a Search Query to understand syntax.
For formulas within Answers, id refers to the display name of the formula. If you do not give your formula a name, it appears as 'Untitled Formula'.

Limitations of working with TSL files

There are certain limitations to the changes you can apply by editing a Worksheet, Answer, Table, View, or Pinboard through TSL.

  • Formulas and columns can either have a new name, or a new expression. You cannot change both, unless migrating or updating the worksheet two times.

  • It is not possible to reverse the join direction in the TSL script.

  • You cannot create new tables using Scriptability. You can only update existing tables.

  • You can only change logical tables using Scriptability. You cannot change the physical version of the table that exists in a database. When you change the column_name, for example, the name changes in the application, but not in the physical table in the database.

  • You cannot import manually compressed .zip files. You can only import .zip files that you exported from ThoughtSpot: either an object and its associated data sources, or multiple objects of the same type that you exported from the object list page.
