Supported data sources and file types

Learn about the Reltio Data Loader requirements for data sources and file formats, and file sizes.

The Data Loader supports loading data from various sources and in several file formats. We recommend that you use the CSV format. The software actually transforms the JSON and Excel formats to CSV before loading.

For an example of how the Data Loader transforms a JSON file, see topic JSON file loading example.

When you're choosing the data to load to the Reltio platform, make sure it meets the requirements described here:
