[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Events Bulk Import

Hi, folks. I have migrated our accession data from an old MS Access database into Preservica and I used the collection management fields to import the processing status and related info, but now I would like to bulk import/create event records for all processed accessions (some 8000 records).

I found this blog post from 2015 that describes doing so using the API:


Has anyone tried this or have any other methods to recommend? Are you using Events to track processing? Is it worth it? Initially, I wanted to create events so that we could use the "Unprocessed Accessions" report, which relies on events, but now that we can make custom reports, it seems less urgent.

Thanks for any insight!
