                               have happened
      --overwrite            If a document with the same name already exists,
                               it will be skipped by default. Use --overwrite
                               to force it to be replaced.
      --force                Imports even if there are validation errors

                               compatible with the instance (CAUTION: this may
                               put the database in a bad state).
