Import Profiles Project from Git

Import an existing Profiles project from the Git repository in RudderStack dashboard.

If you have created a Profiles project using the Profile Builder (command-line tool), you can make it available in a Git repository, and further import it in the RudderStack dashboard to:

  • View the project, its details, and the output tables in the UI.
  • Schedule its invocation periodically (for example, every 12 hours, 6 hours, etc.).
  • Seamlessly collaborate with your teammates, with modular control over your model files.


  • Profiles project in a Git repository
RudderStack recommends using a different target schema and user for Profiles for RudderStack dashboard than the one used for CLI project. This will maintain differentiation in case of manual runs (using CLI) and scheduled runs (using RudderStack dashboard):
