Importing and updating records
Upload PastPerfect export documents at Dashboard > PastPerfect Records > Import. Records are individuated by the
identifier field; those records whose
identifer cannot be found in the WP database will have a new local record created, while those with an existing
identifier will have their local records updated.
Records are available at an API endpoint with the format
/wp-json/bhs/v1/record/[identifier]. Be sure to flush your permalinks after activating the plugin, to ensure that the endpoint works (Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks > Save).
There is a companion plugin that enables WordPress authors to access and display Storehouse data via shortcodes or template functions. See bhs-client.
