This topic describes how to import data from a JSON file.
Data Import Wizard pages can slightly differ due to the product you have been using.
Decide what table to import the data to:
For a new table:
For an existing table:
Right-click a table in Database Explorer and select Import Data from the shortcut menu. The Data Import wizard opens with predefined parameters: a Microsoft SQL Server connection, a database, and a table to import the data to.
Alternatively, on the Database menu click Import Data, and select a required table on the Destination table wizard page.
Select the JSON import format and specify a location of Source data. Click Next.
Map the Source columns to the Target ones. If you are importing the data into a new table, dbForge Studio will automatically create and map all the columns. If you are importing into an existing table, only columns with the same names will be mapped, the rest should be mapped manually. (If no columns with the same name are found, they are mapped in succession - the 1st column in Source with the 1st column in Target, etc.)
To cancel mapping of all the columns, click Clear Mappings on the toolbar. To restore it, click Fill Mapping.
Click Finish to finish the import and close the wizard.
You can save the import settings as a template for future uses. Click the Save Template button on any wizard page to save the selected settings. Next time you should only select a template and specify a location of the Source data - all the settings will be already set. For more information, go to Saving and Using Templates topic.
