Importer #

This custom resource type allows you to import collections from an existing MongoDB.

Installation #

Create a project. Then install the dpd-importer module.

dpd create my-app
cd my-app
mkdir node_modules
npm install dpd-importer
dpd -d

In your dashboard - click the green new resource button and choose Importer.

Give the new resource the default name "/importer". Open it by clicking "IMPOTER" in the left menu.

Enter the information of your old MongoDB server. Clicking on Start Import will start creating deployd collections from data in the provided db by streaming data directly from the old db into your new deployd db. The importer will do its best to create properties based on the types it infers from your data.
