Uploading Data

Files can be uploaded easily into Datameer to then be provided as Datameer datasets. They can be viewed and interacted with inside a Project's Workbench.


Any files you upload will live in your company's Datameer environment and all the other Datameer users in your organization will be able to read and use them in their own work. Please consider the confidentiality of files before uploading them to Datameer.

File Types#

Currently only files in CSV format can be uploaded.

General Considerations#

  • Name - Cannot contain the backtick (`) character or begin with either a space or an underline (_) character.
  • Data size - Dataset files with more than 512 columns will not upload to Datameer. Datasets containing more than 3 million rows will upload but are not processed by Datameer and will display with an error next to their names.

Uploading CSV Data#

To upload a CSV file:

  1. In the Project's Workbench, click on "+ Add Data". The dataset overview opens.

  2. Click on "Upload File".The 'Upload File' dialog opens.

  3. Drag and drop your file or click on "Add File" and select the CSV file.

  4. If needed, rename the file. Then click on "Choose Destination". The 'Select Schema' dialog opens.

  5. Click on the target Schema and confirm with "Connect". The file is now uploaded and displayed in the flow area.
