Loading data from internal and external locations.
File sources are a structured data source that can be uploaded to your DCN via the File Upload source. These files can be in
JSONformat and must be structured in a specific way so that all identifiers and their respective traits can be ingested by your DCN. You can learn more about the file upload source here.
An API source can be used to stream ID profiles from any system, server to server to your Optable DCN. You can create as many API sources as you like, to represent each of the systems or databases from which you are sourcing data. Examples of types of systems that you can bring in data from include DMPs, CDPs, CRMs, bespoke databases, etc. You can learn more about API sources here.
You can connect directly to your Snowflake data warehouse using a Snowflake source to easily import data into your DCN from a view or a table using a specified schema. You can learn more about Snowflake sources here.
Ingestion Frequency Selector
You can archive a source by clicking the context menu and selecting "Archive". To archive a source you must first remove it from any referenced query audiences, or archive those audiences completely.
Once archived, source data ingestion will be paused, and data will be removed from all insights reports. You can restore an archived source by clicking the "Archived" filter and selecting "Restore" from the respective source's context menu.
You can view a history of all previous source uploads, ingestions and errors by navigating to your source in Integrations > Sources and clicking on the "History" tab.
Your DCN can automatically delete ID profile data after some amount of time has elapsed since the last time it was loaded. The maximum elapsed time to deletion is called the expiry. By default, SDK sources have an expiry of 30 days, meaning that data loaded via SDK is automatically deleted after 30 days have elapsed since the last time it was loaded.
Expiry is disabled for API sources by default, but you can optionally configure an expiry duration in the source's settings.
