InPort XML Loader
The InPort XML Loader allows users to upload Catalog Items into InPort in a custom XML format.
To create a new Data Set from an InPort XML file, navigate to the catalog item that will be the parent of this new Data Set. Under the Item Actions menu, click on the link, "Add Child Item From File".
To update an existing Data Set from an InPort XML file, navigate to the Data Set you wish to update. Under the Item Actions menu, click on the link, "Update Item From File".
For more information on producing and uploading InPort XML files, please see the InPort XML Loader Documentation page.
