Importing through a template

An import template is created or modified during the process of importing data. A template can be saved separately to facilitate repeated imports, and then used to run an import job. Ensure that the path to the source data referred to in the template is valid before you begin. For more details about templates, see Using import templates.

To run an import job from a template:

  1. Go to the Data Management workspace > All Import Templates view.

  2. Select your template in the list.

  3. In the Tasks pane, click Run Job From Template. A message appears indicating that the import has begun.

  4. To see the status of the import, go to the All Import Jobs view and look up the template used for the import.

  5. To see if there are any errors associated with the job, select the job and click View Details. The Processing Details tab contains a summary of the results.
