Import endpoint

The /rpc/import endpoint in the Schema Registry API allows you to create Experience Data Model (XDM) resources from generated export payloads. Export payloads can be created from two sources:

Once you create an export payload, you can use the /rpc/import endpoint to generate the resource (and all dependent resource) in the sandbox of your choice.

Getting started

The /rpc/import endpoint is part of the Schema Registry API. Before continuing, please review the getting started guide for links to related documentation, a guide to reading the sample API calls in this document, and important information regarding required headers that are needed to successfully make calls to any Experience Platform API.

The /rpc/import endpoint is part of the remote procedure calls (RPCs) that are supported by the Schema Registry. Unlike other endpoints in the Schema Registry API, RPC endpoints do not require additional headers like Accept or Content-Type, and do not use a CONTAINER_ID. Instead, they must use the /rpc namespace, as demonstrated in the API calls below.

Import a resource

Once you have generated an export payload for an XDM resource, you can use that payload in a POST request to the /import endpoint to import that resource into a target organization and sandbox.

API format

POST /rpc/import

Request

The following request takes the payload returned from a call to the /rpc/export endpoint to import a field group (Restaurant) into a new organization and sandbox, as determined by the x-gw-ims-org-id and x-sandbox-name headers, respectively.
