Attached is a quick JSON dump of all the container profiles we have in Denver’s 
ArchivesSpace instance so far. You’ll probably want to have someone take out 
all the created/last modified data if you use this, and I’m not 100% sure the 
dimensions are exactly accurate (I rounded up to the nearest quarter inch), but 
it covers most of the Gaylord boxes we buy in bulk. Titles include 
human-readable names as well as the Gaylord product code.

We added these one by one through the staff interface, so I’m not sure if 
there’s a non-API method we could have used to do it in a batch.  -k

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Importing container profiles?


We've just migrated to v.1.5.1, so we need to create a whole bunch of container 
profiles. I know others have been in this exact same situation, and most of our 
boxes are the same as at every other repository.

  *   Does anyone have a list/spreadsheet/etc of container profiles they're 
willing to share, so I don't have to look up dimensions on a vendor website (or 
worse, head into the stacks with a yardstick)?
  *   Is there no way to import multiple container profiles at once from the 
ASpace staff interface? Or is the only way with the API?
