Bulk upload objects

IoT Edge Connect Message Store lets you upload multiple objects at the same time to a data set using the Bulk upload operation in the ECMS API, or after uploading them using the NetStorage application. During the upload, the archive is automatically uploaded to ECMS, unzipped and placed in the data set, with the filename from the archive as the key. Using the NetStorage application, you can upload up to 10 objects with total size of 1 GB, while there are no limits when uploading objects using the ECMS API.

If you use the Bulk upload operation, and you add headers to the POST request while uploading the archive, such as Content-Type or Expires, all objects shall have the same headers set after unpacking. Bulk upload also allows you to add custom metadata, but every object shares the same settings after uploading and unpacking.

Before you upload objects using the NetStorage application, make sure that:
