    We have seevral files that are sent via FTP to our servers.  Is there a way to set up automatic imports of files from a folder in DMX?  I know we acn use the Admin->Options ->Import feature to import the documents manually, but is there a way to schedule this to run automatically?

    Thanks,

    Chhavi

    Hi Chhavi,

    You'd need to code it yourself, but it need not be overly complex. There is an Import method that you'll find quite easily if you trace the code from the Import page. Use that. Keep in mind that this code imports everything. If you need to 'merge' it will require more coding on your behalf.

    Good luck,
    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for your response.  When you say 'merge' do you mean automatically adding new versions of the same file?  Are there APIs to do this in DMX 4?

    Thanks,

    Chhavi

    Hi Chhavi,

    In DMX 4 there is EntriesController.SimplifiedReplace where you specify an entry and the file to create a new version with.
