Bulk Data Upload

Unit21 accepts bulk file uploads through the dashboard.

Simply follow the steps in the section Upload a Data File and make sure the file adheres to the proper format.

Bulk File Format

In the standard JSON format, each uploaded file should contain a single JSON array of multiple objects of the same type (either entity, event, or instrument). Here are some examples of standard JSON format data files:

Entities JSON example:
