Insert Metadata Action

You can insert rows using the INSERT metadata action tags. The rows you insert using this action tag are linked to other rows in the request per their defined relationships. This can be helpful when insertions auto-generate primary keys (for example, AutoNum or Identity columns). For example, you want to add a set of EmployeeSkills for an Employee, and create the Skills referenced by the EmployeeSkills.
