Create/Drop datasource by adding files directly

Is it possible to add datasource (PDS/VDS) definitions by adding JSON (models) to dremio folders?
Say for example I add a DS file redshift_prod.json under <DREMIO_ROOT>/dremio/ds/pds/ … Please let me know.
I remember in Drill, either I register through rest call or drop the datasource json file under some drill folders.



We do not support adding files directly under “$DREMIO_HOME/data/pdfs/uploads/_uploads/@dremio”. Are you looking to copy a set of files. If that is the case you should be able to achieve this through the UI by simply promoting a folder
