After you have prepared a Data Sources data file, submit it to Data Sources for processing. Adobe maintains several Data Sources FTP servers where you can upload Data Sources files. Remember the following about the Data Sources FTP servers:
To upload a data sources file
Use an FTP client to send the data to your Data Sources FTP site.
(Available in the FTP Info link in the Data Sources Manager).
Upload a .fin file to notify Adobe that the Data Sources file upload is complete.
The .fin file must have the exact same name as the Data Sources file, except for the file extension. Adobe does not queue the Data Sources file for processing until you upload the .fin file.
Do not upload the file until all Data Sources files have finished uploading. Otherwise, Data Sources might attempt to process an incomplete file.
After the .fin file is uploaded, it’s important that you log out of the Data Sources FTP site. The reason is that Analytics uses logout events as a trigger to indicate that files are ready for processing.
Watch for any messages during the Data Sources file processing.
Data Sources Manager displays any errors that occur during the file processing.
