Uploading charts in bulk
If you have a large number of charts to upload to the Chart Store for the first time, you can use Upload from Folder from the Publish tab. The operation can be resource-intensive, and so it is prudent to use it in line with the recommendations here.
When Analyst's Notebook uploads charts, it indexes their contents and generates images of them. The more charts there are, and the larger they are, the more significant the amount of processing becomes. Charts that contain images are especially demanding.
If you have a large number (hundreds or thousands) of charts to upload, and especially if some of those charts have the characteristics above, i2 recommends uploading in batches rather than all at once.
- In the ribbon, on the Publish tab, click Upload from Folder.Analyst's Notebook displays the Upload Charts from Folder dialog.
- Specify the path to a folder that contains the charts you want to upload to the Chart
Store.From this dialog you can click the checkboxes to Include subfolders in your upload, and Add Chart Store identifiers to chart files. When you add identifiers, Analyst's Notebook maintains relationships between the charts on disk and the charts in the store. These relationships drive the version control mechanism, for example.
- Click Edit to provide common information for the uploaded charts, such as notes, security settings, and property values.
- Click Upload to start the upload process.Analyst's Notebook displays a dialog that reports progress and provides the option to view a more detailed log file.
