Greetings,

We wish to onboard offline data in our AAM instance. The article mentions the pre-requisites but I could not find any step-by-step article which will guide me through the process.

For starters, I was able to achieve "ID synchronization" using the method mentioned in this article. Can anyone confirm if this approach for id-sync is valid to achieve offline data upload too? If not, the other methods mentioned here are not intuitive and I am not able to understand from where to even begin.

Coming to the second process of file upload. I can see there are ways using FTP and S3 but no proper documentation on how to even begin with? I did come across a forum post where one of the rep mentioned file uploading via "People" section under the 9-dot drop down on the top, is that the way to go if not S3/FTP?

I would really appreciate if someone could break down the process of uploading offline data in simple steps. I am very new to the tool so please excuse me if I missed on some trivial details or if my understanding is incorrect

Thank you,

Harshit Pandey

Hello Varun,

We uploaded a file with name "s3ndemdex-s2s-clientsaccenture-partneraccenture-partnerdate=2018-04-24ftp_dpm_266295_2312_1524562611.sync.1" and I used the exact syntax depicted in the page here.

I am also attaching a screenshot of my file which we used. It does not have any sensitive data and everything is dummy so it is safe to share. I have added new key=value pairs.

key value piars.JPG

My question is that upon uploading the S3 browser returned with an .invalid file.

How do I verify that my file was correctly uploaded or not and when should the created traits start populating data since I have already started activities on my website for id-sync to begin and the traits should now qualify.

Thanks,
