How do I update my reports after changing hubs?

Migrate Connections to a New Hub

If you've created a hub and reports with the connections, then change your mind later or would like to consolidate payment on another hub, you will need to migrate your connections to the new hub.  If you do not migrate the connections but the bill is no longer being paid on the original hub, your reports will stop working.

Before You Proceed:

Migrating a Hub is a lengthy process. Most of our customers can save a lot of time by simply changing their Hub's owner or adding a billing contact.
  1. Do you need help changing your Hub's owner or adding a billing contact? Please read this article: Manage Team Roles and Permissions

If you are certain that you want to migrate all of your reports' connections to a new Hub, please follow these steps:

Create the new Hub

If you haven't already, create the new Hub or obtain an invitation to the new Hub.
Your membership or ownership of the new hub is required to create new connections with your data sources.
