stardog-admin virtual import


Imports (aka materializes) data from a database or file (delimited or JSON) into Stardog.


stardog-admin [ --krb5 ] [ --krb5-disable-rdns ] [ --server <server url> ] virtual import [ {-c | --compute} <compute source> ] [ {-f | --format} <Mappings format> ] [ {-g | --named-graph} <named graph> ] [ {-p | --passwd} <password> ] [ {-P | --ask-password} ] [ {-pc | --partition-column} <partition column> ] [ --remove-all ] [ --run-as <username> ] [ {-s | --data-source} <data source> ] [ {-u | --username} <username> ] [ {-v | --verbose} ] [--] <database name> <configFile> <mappingsFile> <inputFile>...


Name, shorthand Description
-c <compute source>, --compute <compute source> The compute source for this import. If provided, materialization of data will be processed on this compute server. The compute source should be the name of the data source when the external compute platform is Databricks. For emr-serverless as an external compute platform, this should be the file path containing the required properties for emr-serverless.
-f <Mappings format>, --format <Mappings format> Format of the mappings; one of [STARDOG, R2RML, SMS2]. Use this command-line option instead of setting the mappings.syntax option in the options file.
-g <named graph>, --named-graph <named graph> Target named graph. If no named graph is specified, the default graph will be used. This is the named graph where data will be imported into.
--krb5 Use the Kerberos environment.
--krb5-disable-rdns Disable reverse DNS lookup for Kerberos clients.
-p <password>, --passwd <password> Password.
-P, --ask-password Prompt for password.
-pc <partition column>, --partition-column <partition column> The name of the partition column, to be specified in case of databricks JDBC connection.
--remove-all Remove all flag. If this flag is set, all data in destination named graph will be removed before the import.
--run-as <username> User to impersonate when running the command
-s <data source>, --data-source <data source> The data source for this import. Data sources can be added with stardog-admin data-source commands.
--server <server url> URL of Stardog Server. If this option isn’t specified, it will be read from JVM argument ‘stardog.default.cli.server’. If the JVM arg isn’t set, the default value ‘http://localhost:5820’ is used. If server URL has no explicit port value, the default port value ‘5820’ is used. Example: ‘stardog-admin –server server stop’
-u <username>, --username <username> User name.
-v, --verbose Flag that can cause more detailed information to be printed such as errors and status. Exact output depends upon the command and options used.
-- This option can be used to separate command-line options from the list of argument(s). (Useful when an argument might be mistaken for a command-line option)
<database name> <configFile> <mappingsFile> <inputFile> The name of the database to import the data followed by a configuration file, a mappings file and an input file. When importing from an RDBMS the configuration file is required, the mappings file is optional (when absent direct mapping is used), and input file argument is not used. When importing CSV, the configuration file is optional, the mappings file and the input file (should be a valid CSV file) are required.
