Import an Entry

Contentstack allows you to import the data of existing entries. You can either create a new entry and import content, or you can edit an entry and replace the existing content by importing content.

To import content for a new entry, open the required content type and click on + New Entry. Then click the Import link available on the bottom-right corner of the page, and select the appropriate JSON file. While importing, ensure that you have chosen the correct locale to import the file as a localized entry.

To import content for an existing entry, edit the required entry, and click the Import link to upload the JSON file.

Warning : The content of the existing entry will be replaced with the new content available in the JSON file. Also, the import event will fail if the file you import contains references to other entries or assets outside the stack or is formatted incorrectly.
