CloudConnect Designer and the CL Tool

Before the introduction of CloudConnect Designer, GoodData offered a command-line (CL) tool for building logical data models using XML definition documents.

The CL Tool is still available.

However, the CloudConnect Designer offers superior development, validation, and publishing tools. Some actions in CloudConnect Designer, such as moving an attribute or fact to a new dataset, are not available through the CL Tool, which cannot load the logical data models where these incompatible changes or actions have been specified. We recommend that you use CloudConnect Designer.

If you developed data models using the XML definitions in the CL Tool, those definition files can be imported into CloudConnect Designer. See Importing CL Tool XMLs in CloudConnect.
