When the individual XML files contain a URL path to a media file, Imagen will take in the media and ingest it to the new record. You have the option to choose the workflow to send it to, giving you the ability to add watermarks, pre-rolls, and other features.

Imagen will update an existing record if an Import XML file contains a matching record ID.  Click here to take a look at an example Mapping File and the Imagen XML schema
