Insight External Import

Hi all,

I am trying to trying to develop some external imports to Insight Cloud. I have successfully import data to new object types as well as existing types using the existing documentation and the json scheme mapping 2021_09_15.

I would like to know if there is some other specifications to apply in the mapping scheme json or in the data json so I can import objects that contains references to other objects in their attributes. Any sample json or further documentation links would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Hi Luis,

We just released support for object references. This backwards compatible change has been added to the 2021_09_15 schema, so you can continue to use it while adding object reference attributes to your objects.

See our documentation here: External Imports - Schema and mapping

Kind regards,

thanks for remember it!

I get this error when fetching the rest point for external imports from a forge app.

INFO 15:08:40.647 a50516d543e2ad4b FetchError: request to failed, reason: URL not included in the external fetch backend permissions: Visit for more information.

Do I need to add

        - ""

or maybe there is another way to code it?

Thank you, Luis

we developed a Java Tool for Insight to use the external data import API. You can read more about this here: External Import Tool for JSM Insight - Importing Data into Insight is much easier and more secure than ever!
