Scalar 2 User's Guide

Bulk importing data from a JSON file using the Transfer tool

The Transfer tool is located in the Dashboard's Import/Export tab. (The tool is a Scalar plugin and might not be present if the administrator of your Scalar install hasn't installed it separately from Scalar itself.) Its primary function is to allow for migration of Scalar books from one place to another, for example, migrating a Scalar book from one Scalar install to another.

To import content from another Scalar book saved as a JSON file, follow the steps below:

1. Head to the Utilities tab in the Dashboard.
2. Select “Upload file,” under the Import section of the tab.
3. Browse your computer and find the file you downloaded in Step 1.
4. Click "Continue" on the bottom right.
5. Once the JSON has been validated, a pop up box containing the source JSON will appear. Click "Import" at the bottom right of the pop up box.
