geogig shp import <shapefile> [<shapefile>]… [–dest <path>] [–fid-attrib <attrib_name>] [–add] [–alter]


-d, --dest <path>
 The path to import to. If not specified, it uses the filename of the shapefile
--fid-attrib <attrib_name>
 Uses the specified attribute as the feature id of each feature to import. If not used, a number indicating the position in the shapefile is used
--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


This command imports features from one or more shapefiles into the GeoGig working tree.
