2800832 - How-to: About Wrangle contents shown in Export list of Deployment in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • When you try to export content in Deployment, there are some contents under Wrangler
  • What are they?
  • Why are some of them included as dependencies of selected model, but others not?
  • Is there any different to select or not the Data checkbox for the Wrangler items?


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant.
  2. Go to Deployment > Export.
  3. Choose the New (plus sign) icon.
    => The New window opens and the left-hand pane contains nodes that list the content that can be exported. 
    => There are some contents under Wrangler.


  • The wrangling objects are a dependency of those models that are created through the wrangling workflow. 
  • They are internal objects which give the metadata of what transformations (split, add column, etc) have been applied to a specific set of data or model, so they can be reused - for example, during a story copy.
  • When exporting the model or story, please always include the wrangler/ wrangling objects, as it tracks your transformations and acts as the link between stories and their specific models.
  • Not including these objects could cause stories, modeling rebuilds, and other functionality to have strange behavior or render a story unusable.


  • In conclusion, the wrangling object should always be included, with the data box checked.
