Entity Discovery vs. Creation

VirtualWisdom entities consist of two sets of objects: 1) Those that are discovered and created automatically, and 2) Those that are created by the user.

Only the entity types shown in the following table can be created by the user, and only these entity types are allowed to appear in a JSON entity import file. The import file must be JSON v2; JSON v1 is not supported.
