The cbimport command is used to import data from various sources into a Couchbase cluster. Each supported format is a subcommand of the cbimport utility.
The cbimport utility translates data read from disk into JSON documents prior
to importing them into the provided cluster. The converted documents must
conform to the JSON specification defined in
This means cbimport will skip importing documents that either:
1) Are not valid JSON
2) Are not valid UTF-8 data, as defined in
RFC 8259 JSON transferred between
systems MUST be encoded using UTF-8.
Documents that are skipped during an import will be logged, along with the line number/index from which they originated. This information can be used to single out/fix invalid documents prior to re-importing.
