    Blob Storage

    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:FUSION_PORT/api/blobs/myplugin?resourceType=plugin:connector' --data-binary @myplugin.zip

    The complete list of valid values for resourceType is below:

    Type Description

    banana

    A Banana dashboard

    catalog

    driver:jdbc

    file:js-index

    A JavaScript file for use with a Managed Javascript index stage

    file:js-query

    A JavaScript file for use with a Managed Javascript query stage

    file

    Any uploaded file, such as from the Quickstart or the Index Workbench

    model:open-nlp

    unspecified

    If no resourceType is specified on upload, "other" is assigned by default.

    plugin:connector

    plugin:index-stage

    plugin:query-stage

    The Blob manager

    In addition to the Blob Store API, the Fusion UI provides an interface to the blob store in the Fusion workspace at System > Blobs:

    • Click Add to upload a new blob:

    • Select an uploaded blob to view, replace, or delete it:

    Blob editor

    The blob editor gives the ability to edit blobs in the Fusion UI in a variety of formats:

    • CSV

    • Java

    • JavaScript

    • Python

    • SCALA

    • Typescript

    • Plain text

    Navigate to System > Blobs, select a blob, and click the Edit blob button to open the editor:

    Edit blob button

    • If the Edit blob button is not available, the blob type cannot be edited with the blob editor.

    • For Fusion 5.4.x and later, JavaScript can be edited directly in the Fusion UI.

    The editor has several elements worth noting:
