Koverse allows data to be imported from a variety of external data sources. To import data into Koverse, click the ‘+’ button next to ‘Datasets’ on the primary navigation menu on the left.
This will prompt a screen to allow you name your new dataset, and provide any additional information about your dataset, once complete, click ‘CREATE’
You can now import data into your newly created dataset. Data can be imported from a number of source types, which can be shown by clicking import data. You have the ability to either upload a file or connect to a source, such as Amazon S3. Supported file types are .json, .csv, .xls, .gzip, .gz.
Selecting a source type (External Source)
To import data from an external data source (versus via uploading files from your browser) ensure that ‘Connect Source’ is selected at the top of the Add Data Set page.
After a source type is selected you will see a list of parameters used to identify and connect to that data source. Fill out the access information and click Next. To change the type of source selected, click Back. Clicking Cancel will allow you to start over from the beginning.
Uploading files from desktop
Instead of connecting to an external data source, you can upload files directly from your browser into a data set in Koverse. To do this, click on ‘Upload File’ on the Add Data Set page.
You can drag and drop files from your desktop into the black rectangular section on this page or click the ‘Browse Files’ button to select files to upload. These files will be staged and listed on the right. If you wish to remove some staged files before importing, click the ‘x’ icon next to the file you wish to remove. Once the files are uploaded, click ‘Next’.
Loading data into Koverse is a four-step process.
- Enter a name and any other descriptive information for your dataset
- Select and define an external source or upload files from your browser into a staging environment
- Select to enable ABAC controls (if needed) for your dataset, and apply necessary rules, otherwise you can choose not to enable those controls. Please note that revisions to ABAC labels cannot be made after import.
- Click ‘Import Data’ and allow your data to be ingested into the dataset you created.
