can import data from a variety of flat file formats and other distributed sources.
NOTE: does not modify a source. Instead, a set of metadata is associated with the source data, which enables transformation of the source. On export, a new version of the data is written to one or more specified output destinations.

NOTE: Any user with a valid user account can import data from a local file.
