Configuring the Importer extension

The importer extension can be used without any explicit configuration, and by default it will:

  • Stage the REST uploads in a dedicated sub-folder of the data directory (uploads).

  • Pose no limit to the amount of concurrent imports executed.

It is however possible to configure the above using the “Importer” entry under the “Settings” menu:
