Automating the export and import parts of bulk load

11 - Bolide

@MattH gave us this great KB write-up but can more be done to automate the export and import steps?


Have I overlooked something in the API that would enable the import of term description and owner attributes?


The path forward looks like I should use python+selenium to automate clicks on the web pages.

Is anyone doing anything like this? Or have other suggestions?

Is this an alternative?

I can embed an image into my glossary term description. the source code ends up looking like this:


<img src="file/9457d1a6-0e08-4f7c-94ae-6c9aabe089db">


If I knew what directory the file referred to I may be able to replace it using an Alteryx workflow.


What is the path image files are stored for glossary term description attributes?

sigh! swapping image files isn't going to work. I tracked the image down into a blob in column ATTACHMENT.attachment_body but have no idea what to do with it and would be scared to change it without and API or something. 


So no plan B and back to plan A
