Possible formats for import

To be able to work efficiently, it is important that data can be imported into Beeyond in various formats. Currently, it is possible to import data from .XML, .CSV and .Txt files.

Beeyond is still being developed continuously, and in the future it will be possible to import data from other files, such as .XLS and .XLSX as well.


Data validation during import

It is possible to set one or several validators for each type of entity or attribute. This makes the input of data subject to certain requirements. An example is that a series of numbers must lie between certain values.

During the input of data into Beeyond it is checked if the data meet the pre-set validators.
