Easy data import into IRIS

Sometimes you need quickly and easily import data into IRIS. For this, an IRIS import manager has been developed.

This application allows you to import JSON data and also provides a really simple interface for transferring data from MongoDB collections to IRIS globals. It has never been so easy.

Let's look at examples.

Import JSON

Suppose we have data in JSON format and we want to import it into IRIS. To do this, you just need to specify the global name and insert the data. After import, you will see the imported data. If global exists data will be overwritten.

 

Import MongoDB collections

 

There is a collection navigation on the main page.

 

Just open the collection and you will see information about it and import control buttons that allow you to transfer data to IRIS or clear it.

After import, you will also see the imported data.

 

What other imports would you like to have in this application? Any ideas are very welcome.

Nice work, Oleh!

I tested on my laptop - it indeed imports 1,500 collections from Mongo to IRIS in a few seconds! Neat!

I'm curious if the app which works on Mongo can refer to this data in IRIS?

Thank you.

To do this, the application must support IRIS connection.

On the JSON import: is it possible to import from text.file?

And export global to a text file with JSON?

Not at the moment, but I think it would be convenient.

How does it handle sql created globals?
As mentioned by Evgeny Shvarov , export could be great also.
