UE4 Connector: How to import USD filefrom local disk?

Since Omniverse plugin disable USD importer I (seems like) can not import USD files from the local disk.
I can export unreal assets to USD using the export feature of Omniverse plugin but when I tried to import USD format is not supported file format.

Omniverse document said

  • Animation Introduced in 100.1

    • Skeletal Mesh animation
    • TimeSamples (as Level Sequence Actor)
  • Cameras

    • USD Camera attributes mapped to Cinematic cameras
  • Lights

    • USD Distant Light (as Directional)
    • USD Rect Light (as Rect)
    • USD Sphere Light (as Point)

Is this import feature only available to the Nucleus server?
