Bulk load data

Before running the bulk loading command, you must first create a JSONL file that contains the data that you want to import in your Mattermost directory. The file can have any name, but in this example it’s called data.jsonl. The format of the file is described in the Data format section.

  1. After you create the file, upload the file to the database by running the mmctl import upload command. For example: mmctl import upload data.jsonl.

  2. Confirm that the file is uploaded and ready for use by running the mmctl import list available command.

  3. Import your uploaded file by running the mmctl import process command. For example: mmctl import process data.jsonl.
