Import a taxonomy from a TSV text file

The import taxonomy wizard lets you add one or more taxonomy files prepared outside IXIASOFT CCMS into the Content Store.

Important: If you import an updated version of a taxonomy that already exists in IXIASOFT CCMS, the imported taxonomy does not replace or update the existing one. The import process creates a new taxonomy from the imported taxonomy file.

Importing a taxonomy file is not recommended as a way to update existing taxonomies.

The taxonomy must be specified in a TSV (tab-separated values) text file that reflects the structure of the taxonomy. For example:
Figure: Sample taxonomy structure (from the Google product taxonomy)
Sample taxonomy
