Getting Your Data Into LiveRamp

After you've finalized your file for uploading, there are several methods you can use to get your data into LiveRamp:

Caution

When you're uploading the first file to an audience, you'll need to create a support case so we can make sure your file is imported correctly. Depending on the type of audience and your situation, you might need to do this before uploading your first file or after (or both). See 'Considerations When Uploading the First File to an Audience" for more information.

Tip

If you have more than one audience, make sure to determine the audience to upload to.

An alternative method to get data into LiveRamp is our Client Side Tag, a tag that can be placed on any cookieable website, or in any email or online advertisement. It is used to log impressions, group them into segments, and automatically import those segments into LiveRamp for processing. For more information, see Implementing LiveRamp's Client-Side Tag.

Next Steps

For offline (PII-based) data, if this is the first file you're uploading to this audience, create a support case so the support team can make sure everything ingests correctly. See 'Considerations When Uploading the First File to an Audience" for more information.

Within about 20 minutes after uploading, you can check the status of your uploaded files on the Files page, either by clicking the "GO TO FILES PAGE" link or by clicking Files in the Connect navigation menu.

Once your data has been ingested (usually within 1-3 days), you can manage it in Connect and distribute it to your desired destinations.
