      Blob Storage

      Table of Contents

      Fusion accepts large binary objects (blobs) for upload, and stores them in Solr. Blob uploads are used to install models, lookup lists, JDBC drivers, connectors, and more.

      Blob Types

      A resourceType query parameter can be used to specify the a blob type. For example, specify plugin:connector when uploading a connector, like this:

      curl -H 'content-type:application/zip' -X PUT 'fusion-host:{api-port}/api/blobs/myplugin?resourceType=plugin:connector' --data-binary @myplugin.zip

      The complete list of valid values for resourceType is below:

      catalog

      driver:jdbc
