Sitecore Data Importer

July 08, 2011

Many of the projects I've worked on over the past several years have required importing data either from SQL or from an existing Sitecore installation itself. The original application was a page form that imported data from a database and was developed by Mark Graber, Sitecore MVP and employee at Agency Oasis. Each time I've used it I improve on it and have since retooled it as an internal Sitecore application. I've recently cleaned it up to be a reusable, customizable application and am releasing it as a shared source module. You can find it on Sitecore Shared Source, or by getting the SVN repo at http://svn.sitecore.net/DataImporter. If you want to test it out you'll just need the package install. You'll also want to look over the documentation, which largely reiterates the information in this article.
