Ingestion Procedures

  • At first, you want to make a CSV(Comma Separated Value) file. CSV should contain the information about the media files that you are about to upload. We recommend to use the "generate CSV" tab, if you are not aware about a CSV file. After the CSV file is ready either by manually or by the generation. You can upload media files through "Upload via CSV" tab.
