Data Loader Reports

You can view a report in Data Loader to see a list of your imports, general import statistics, run logs that contain import details, and the configuration settings for each import.

To access reports, go to Data Loader and click the View Report button.

From this page you can:

  • Click the View Settings icon to view the configuration settings for the import.
  • Click the Completed At timestamp to view the run log for a report. There are 3 types of logs that appear in the run log table:
    • Info: Are only available when used in conjunction with Test Run.
    • Partial: Represent formatting errors that may have occurred when parsing the file. Typically, the rows will import, but might be missing some data.
    • Skip: Represent rows that were not imported for a specific reason.
    Each unique type of info is only listed once in the Bronto run log, even if it occurred several times. For example, if you forgot to include a required field then you would only see the Skipped because required field is missing entry once even though several entries were skipped because they were all missing the required field. This is by design in order to make it easier to understand the information in the run log. The error count for the run log entry will let you know how many times the error occurred. You can download a full run log report to view in-depth details about the import in order to troubleshoot issues.
  • Click the Export icon to download the full report log associated with a report. The run logs in Bronto only persist for 30 days. If this information is important to you, please be sure to download within the 30 day window.
  • Use the drop down menu to navigate between reports.

The following table contains all of the field displayed on the reports and run log pages.
