Process of Importing Manufacturers in Oracle Cloud
The purpose of this blog is to explain the step-by-step process of Importing Manufacturers in the Oracle cloud. As compared to other data elements, Manufacturers cannot be imported by usual File-based Data import (FBDI) functionality or through Import Batches (specific to PDH). In earlier releases Manufacturers were imported through Oracle Sales Cloud Process using “Manage File Import Mappings” and “Manage File Import Activities” task from Setup and Maintenance. However, starting from 21A release, the process has changed, and now Import Management work area is used for bulk import of Manufacturers.
Import Management improves definition, error handling, and performance for importing flat files (.CSV). For example, Import Management has drag and drop mapping capabilities and validates the first ten records in your data file before you import to ensure the data meets the import constraints of the various attributes.
