Import file validation

Import file validation

This chapter provides information to use the Validate Import File page in BAT to validate the import .tar file.

Import file validation items

The Validate Import File page in BAT validates the following items in the import .tar file:

  • The .tar file includes a header file.
  • All files listed in the header file are actually present in the .tar file.
  • All files in the .tar file are listed in header file.
  • File names are correct (as per the Import/Export convention).
  • File format for the CSV files in the .tar file is correct.


This feature does not include field level validation for valid characters, string length, etc.

Validate import file

Use the Validate Import File page in BAT to validate the import .tar file.


The validation procedure is carried out only for the items specified for the import.tar file.

    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > Import/Export > Validate Import File. The Validate Import File window displays.
    Step 2   Select the .tar file name in the Tar File Name field and click Submit. The File Name drop-down list box lists all uploaded .tar files. A message in the Status section lets you know that the job was submitted successfully.
    Step 3   To check the status of the job, use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu.

    What to Do Next

    If there are any problems encountered during validation, these are listed in the log files.
