Hi @nabanitakar,


To better help answer or direct you to someone who can help you answer your question; What kinds of data represent “Master data” fin your question?

Master data means set of data in table which does not depend on assets : its just reference data

@nabanitakar You have a few options available to you.

  1. You can create a new database and table by going to Integrate > Prepare data for transformation
    1. You should then see the RAW Explorer. From here you can click the plus (+) sign to create a database. On the next page you will be able to create a table and you can drag and drop your csv right here.
  2. You can use one of the SDKs to do the same thing. Here’s the python SDK documentation:

The view from Product Management considering the direction we are taking CDF, with Data Modelling at the core, we would recommend first considering creation of a data model for your Master Data (with all its requisite types and relationships) in the Data Modelling service

In future we are likely to position RAW as a temporary, staging store for data onboarding workflows, and not as a persistent storage location.

It would still be valuable if you could provide more information about the Master Data though @nabanitakar.  Is it just a simple, single reference table?  How many properties /columns in the table, and how many rows is it likely to grow to?
