Definitions:

* "excluded": A BigFix site is considered excluded if it has made the appropriate selection witihin the WebUI frontend. Content from a site that is excluded will no longer be drawn and therefore any existing content within the database will remain stale. That is if you decide to exclude a site after having run an ETL, future updates to content within that site will not be pulled and you will end up seeing stale content.

* "primary": A BigFix site is considered primary if a user selects a site to be primary, or if it is the first time this site has been imported via the WebUI datasource import process. The primary flag is set at datasource import time. If there exists more than one datasource within BFInsights, then a primary site is used to inform [BFInsights].Global entities (global_fixlets, global_analyses, global_site) when these entities are updated after an ETL.
