Import profiles from a file

To populate your Campaign database, you can add profiles manually or import profiles as detailed below. You can also use imported files to update contact data.

Import profiles with a workflow

Workflows can be a useful way to automate some of your import processes. Whether you import data from a local file or from a SFTP, you can use workflows to standardize your data management procedures.

Use data from a list: Read list

Prepare and structure your data in a file to import it with a workflow.

For more on using the read list activity in a workflow, refer to Campaign Classic v7 documentation.

Load data from a file

The data processed in a workflow can be extracted from a structured file so that it can be imported into Adobe Campaign.

A description of the loading data activity can be found in the Campaign Classic v7 documentation.

Once data has been collected you can use it in your workflows, for example to enrich a delivery or update the database. For more on this, refer to [Campaign Classic v7 documentation]https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/campaign-classic/using/automating-with-workflows/introduction/how-to-use-workflow-data.htmll){target=“_blank”}.

One-shot imports

Adobe Campaign provides generic import capability which allows you, for example, to extract a list of customers or prospects who will then become part of a target population, or to supply your database with data from external files.

Generic imports are managed from the Profiles and Targets > Jobs menu of the Adobe Campaign home page.

The steps to perform a generic import are detailed in Campaign Classic v7 documentation.
