FTP draft ingestion

Draft (aka pagination) PDF files can be added to the database via the Ingestion section of the website admin or via FTP. This document describes the latter.

If you have yet to receive an FTP account for ingestion purposes (which is distinct from that for production purposes), please create a support ticket.

Please be aware of the general FTP ingestion rules before uploading.

Draft file specifications:

  • PDF format

Draft file naming convention:

  • 13-digit ISBN + "_draft" + extension (e.g., 9781585368396_draft.pdf)
  • Do not include hyphens in the ISBN

Note: The root directory of the FTP account is processed on regular basis. If your files do not appear in the ingestion list after a processing cycle, check the failed directory of the FTP account.
