Import Type Property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:

The Import Type property applies to objects in the Export file that already exist in the target Knowledge Base. It is intended to select what objects are going to be imported by comparing the modification date in the Export file and in the Knowledge Base.

Action: Import option

Values

All objects All the objects in the Export file are imported. The modification date is not taken into account. This is the default value.
Different objects Only objects in the Export file that have a different modification date than the corresponding objects in the Knowledge Base are imported.
Newer objects Only objects in the Export file that are newer (i.e. their modification date is more recent) than the corresponding objects in the Knowledge Base are imported.

Description

Export files may include either objects that are in the target Knowledge Base or objects that are not in it. The Import Type property applies to objects in the Export file that already exist in the target Knowledge Base. It is intended to select what objects are going to be imported by comparing the modification date in the Export file and in the Knowledge Base.

Modification date comparisons may be used to improve Import process performance and/or avoid overwriting objects with older versions.
