Fusion 5.10

    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.

    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:

      Add a blob

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

      Modify a blob

    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:

    Elements Description


    Copies the JSON to the clipboard.


    Pastes the clipboard into the editor. Only valid JSON is accepted.


    Expands the editor to a fullscreen view.


    Condenses the editor to a compact view.


    Saves the JSON in the editor and updates the blob.


    Resets changes made since the last time changes were applied.
