Machine Data: Preview Data


Previously, to upload data you would have to fully import the entire data set before knowing what data was uploaded or if it was even the correct date set. Now with Preview, you can select specific files to upload or you can choose not to upload the data if it is the wrong data set.

This feature is launching as a beta experience (open to all users) while we continue to improve processing speeds. Depending on the monitor and size of the data file, it could take as much as 12-24 hours for data to process in a preview, though in most cases it will be quicker. 


  • Granular Insights Operation
  • An user role on the operation with the ability to upload data (Admin, Advisor, Editor)
  • A zip folder with data to upload
  • Box next to preview checked and upload completed
