geogig pg import [connection_options] [–all|-t <table>] [–dest <path>] [–add] [–alter]


This command imports one or more tables from a PostGIS database into the GeoGig working tree. Either -t or --all must be set for the import process to commence. To see a list of available tables, use geogig pg list.


-d, --dest <path>
 The path to import to. Only allowed when importing a single table. If not specified, it uses the table name
--fid-attrib <attrib_name>
 Uses the specified attribute as the feature id of each feature to import. If not used, the feature id will be determined programmatically.
--add Adds the imported feature to the corresponding tree without removing previous features in case the tree already exists
--alter Same as the --add switch, but if the feature type of the imported features is different to that of the destination tree, the default feature type is changed and all previous features are modified to use that feature type
 Use the feature type of the features to import and do not try to adapt them to the default feature type of the destination tree
-t, --table The table to import.
--all Import all tables.
--host Machine name or IP address to connect to. Default: localhost
--port Port number to connect to. Default: 5432
--schema The database schema to access. Default: public
