Hi @Rajendra Pasupuleti,

Do you still experience this issue?

Answer provided by Andre Alves is very helpful. But while implementing the solution I am facing below error when I ran the code on CDF Jupyter notebook.  Will you be able to help me with this ? 

6 from cognite.client import CogniteClient      7 from cognite.client.data_classes import Row----> 8 from cognite.extractorutils import Extractor      9 from cognite.extractorutils.metrics import safe_get     10 from cognite.extractorutils.statestore import AbstractStateStoreModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cognite.extractorutils'

 

When I ran the same code locally I am getting the below error. I tried different ways but couldn’t fix the error. It would be great help if you can help me fix this. 

 

             Traceback (most recent call last)Cell In[1], line 8      6 from cognite.client import CogniteClient      7 from cognite.client.data_classes import Row----> 8 from cognite.extractorutils.cogex import Extractor      9 from cognite.extractorutils.metrics import safe_get     10 from cognite.extractorutils.statestore import AbstractStateStoreImportError: cannot import name 'Extractor' from 'cognite.extractorutils.cogex' (C:\Users\DSCRP3\AppData\Local\anaconda3\Lib\site-packages\cognite\extractorutils\cogex\__init__.py)

Hi @Rajendra Pasupuleti 

You can find an example of using the Cognite File Extractor for reading files in CSV format and uploading the content to CDF RAW at https://github.com/cognitedata/python-extractor-example.

Hope this helps!

André

Thanks for your response. I am new to CDF and I tried to find resources to implement cognite file extractor but I couldn’t find anything I can follow. Below is the one link I tried to follow but I am not sure how to proceed after dowloading the file_extractor_windows.

Hi, you can use the cognite file extractor to upload files to CDF on a schedule.
