Method: media.upload

Uploads media for indexing.

The upload endpoint supports direct and resumable upload protocols and is intended for large items that can not be inlined during index requests. To index large content:

  1. Call indexing.datasources.items.upload with the resource name to begin an upload session and retrieve the UploadItemRef.
  2. Call media.upload to upload the content using the same resource name from step 1.
  3. Call indexing.datasources.items.index to index the item. Populate the ItemContent with the UploadItemRef from step 1.

For additional information, see Create a content connector using the REST API.

Note: This API requires a service account to execute.
