Import

Overview

Data from various data sources can be imported into Matrix42 Workspace Management via a configured import definition.

Import definition

An import definition is a set of rules and settings according to which information from a certain source is transferred into the specified configuration item.

To manage import definitions:

  1. Start Matrix42 Workspace Management and click the Administration workspace.
  2. In the navigation area, click Import > Import Definitions.
  3. In the grid, click an import definition. It provides an initial overview of the most important information about the import definition and access to the available actions. 

General

  • Template File Name: If this import definition is used for the quick import of records in a certain tabulator, the import template file is specified in this field.
  • Quick Import Definition: Indicates that this import definition can be opened and executed in a tabulator of the corresponding configuration item.

These two fields are normally filled in for import definitions that are delivered out of the box.

Actions

  • Create New Import Definition: An input wizard for adding a new import definition appears.
  • Edit Import Definition: An input wizard for editing a currently opened or selected import definition appears. While editing, you will be able to create a copy, so that the original import definition remains unchanged.
  • Execute Import Definition: Opens the dialog box for import definition execution.
  • View Active Import Definition: Displays the status of the currently running import process.
