External Uploads

In this section we review the concept of External Uploads that can contribute to the creation of Entities within our platform.

External data, as it is clear from the name, originates outside of the Exabyte platform, and can be organized according to the classification employed within the platform. We introduce the concept of an External Upload - an operation where external data is uploaded to the platform and parsed.

View Entities extracted from External Data

We associate the Entities (eg. Materials, Properties) extracted from external data within a single upload task with a Job. And place each such job into a separate project called "External".


External Uploads have statuses attributed to them as explained here.

User Interface


External Uploads Explorer is another specific implementation of the Explorer component and is explained in this page.


Some actions pertain specifically to External Uploads, and are introduced in this page.
