Import Assets from XML tool

The Import assets from XML tool allows users to perform actions passed in from an XML file, including creating assets and setting metadata.

The import/export process is not guaranteed across different versions of Matrix.

The Import assets from XML tool section of the Import assets from XML tool screen:

The Import assets from XML tool screen

To import assets using this tool:

  1. Select an XML file in the Import XML file field. This field also supports importing assets from tar files containing XML and physical files.

  2. Select a parent asset to import the assets under in the Import assets under field.

    If a parent asset is already specified in the XML file, this field will overwrite it.

An example XML file structure is provided on the Import assets from XML tool screen or accessed at /__data/asset_types/tool_import_assets_from_xml/files/example.xml.

This tool is similar to the import_from_xml_file.php script. Read the Import/export scripts documentation for more information about the available scripts for managing Matrix systems.
