The following information is applicable to our original import format (called version 1 imports) in order to support new features and increased flexibility Carbon editor supports a new expanded import format (version 2 imports). If you are implementing imports for the first time or as a proof of concept you may wish to continue using version 1 imports for their simplicity, however we recommend that you transition to version 2 imports for production workflows as all new feature development and support will be on version 2 imports. For details on version 2 imports see Version 2 Imports
Please take note of this important information:
Updating existing Pages using the Import API will be available in an upcoming release. For now, importing content will result in new Pages being created in the selected Document.
The imported content can be:
A sole XML file representing one Page, or
A .zip file containing one XML file for each Page to be created in Carbon Editor.
XML documents define the field types using the "field_type" attribute.
XML documents must be saved with UTF-8 as encoding. Otherwise, content might not import correctly.
Please ensure your XML is valid against the Liquid State Carbon Editor XSD.
