Importing a JSON Entity File

You must have created a JSON import file for the type of import you intend to perform. The file must have a .json extension.

  • From the Settings screen, click Entity Import under Entity Creation Utilities.

The Entity Import page displays.

  • Click Browse and select the file that you want to import.

The imported filename displays.

  • Click Validate to verify the contents of the file.

If errors are found while validating the contents of a JSON file, a warning displays. Some errors still allow you to proceed with the import, but only validated entries are imported.

If there are no errors in the file, a message displays stating that the file was validated.

  • Click Import.

The import process runs in the background. The amount of time that the import takes depends on the number of entities being imported. During this time, you can navigate to other parts of the interface or log out of the VirtualWisdom UI.

  • When import is complete, view the imported entities from the Inventorytab.
