Imports using API

In the link below, it says that in order to carry out an import, "You must be the user who created the import definition. You can only import using the import definitions that you have created". Does that mean that the imports are user-specific? Or would the API be able to use any action that had been set to admins only?

Thanks

Re: Imports using API

Hi,

That's certainly a strange line in the documentation. I can confirm having run imports through API, whose definition I did not create...

Re: Imports using API

@anirudh , thanks for the reply. Have you run these imports recently (i.e since the update to the guide)?

Re: Imports using API

I just checked now on an import I'm positive I did not create and the import completed successfully

I think that is a misprint and should state:

You must be the user who created the import definition. You can only import using import definitions that have already been created.

 

I have reported this to the owners to get this changed.

 

Thanks!
