bulkImportFile( )

Imports a bulk of files to the Media Manager using external urls.

The bulkImportFile() function returns a Promise that resolves to an object containing bulk import metadata and an array of imported files' descriptors and metadata.

Returns information about the imported files. Use the parentFolderId and filePath parameters to specify in which folder you want each file to be imported. If no folder is specified, the file is imported to the media-root folder.

To import files, you need to do one of the following for each file:

  • Pass its MIME type in the mimeType field of the request. For example, mimeType: 'image/jpeg'.
  • Include its extension in either the displayName or url field of the request. For example, displayName: 'Example Image.jpeg or url: https://www.example.com/image.jpeg.
  • Ensure the server hosting the file supports HEAD requests. In these cases the Wix servers can retrieve the MIME type from the hosting server.

    Note: If you want to validate the media type, pass the file's expected media type in the optional mediaType field of the request. For example, mediaType: 'IMAGE'.
