Before you Begin
Ensure the file(s) have been added to the SFTP server. To verify the file(s) are available and up to date, visit Connecting Manually to Illuminate's SFTP server.
The import tool is very strict with the naming convention and files need to be named exactly like the name of each tab in the data specification.
Where to Start
- Go to the Admin Gear.
- Select Core Data Automation Profiles.
- Select Edit under the Actions heading for the desired automation profile.
In the Files text box, add any enter the name of any files in a comma separated list.
It's always best to review your core data import logs to see which files were rejected or errors were generated. That way you can correct the errors in the files and import again to ensure the best possible data is available in Illuminate. Visit Reviewing Core Data Import Logs for more information
