Nice, concise video! Thanks! Here's a question that's open to anyone: let's say you have a use case where you want to enable a bulk-upload of edits, additions, or deletions to entries in a content model by providing a json file of some sort, would the migration tool be a good use of that? From all of the examples I have seen, it seems like the migration tool is only good for manually adding in content / entries. A new file needs to be created every time there's some sort of update. Would you then just need to programmatically create a file for each update? Is there no better way to achieve this?

Hi Peter, for bulk upload you would use the contentful-import. contentful-migration is more about the content structure
