Asset Importer

For detailed information regarding our asset importing capabilities please refer to the document attached.  This document provides a guide to writing the XML configuration file needed to perform an asset import. The import process itself is executed by a command line application running on a client's machine. This asset synchronization tool can be downloaded from the Downloads application in TDNext.

At a high level, this process is:

1. The command line application loads up the configuration from the specified XML file.

2. The application runs a query against an external database.

3. Each returned row is mapped over to an equivalent API asset instance.

4. The resulting assets are separated into batches and each batch of items is submitted to a REST API method, which will create, update, or ignore assets as appropriate
