Customer import tasks and status

To view information about the customer data import tasks, go to Customer Data > Profiles in the left navigation. Click +CUSTOMERS > View Uploads.


On the index page for Customer imports, the status for each task is shown with an overall status that identifies which state the task is in. A task can be in one of the following four statuses: 

Status Description
Draft The task is saved along with the configuration but not launched as yet.  This is an inactive state.
Launched The task is active.  If it is a recurring task, the task remains in this state for the entire duration of its lifetime.
Paused The task has been paused.  This is an inactive state which occurs only when a task is paused by the user.
Completed The task has completed its life cycle.  This is an inactive state and is reached only when a recurring task reaches its end time or when processing is completed for a one time task.

Task details

When you click an individual task, the Import task details page opens. You can view more details about the status for each time a recurring task runs.


The details page shows the following information about the task: 

  • Last Fetch Status - Shows the status for the last run of fetching of data from Snowflake into Blueshift. The status can be Fetching, Fetched, or Failed.
  • Fetch Start time - Shows the start time for the last run of fetching of data from Snowflake into Blueshift
  • Fetch end time - Shows the end time for the last run of fetching of data from Snowflake into Blueshift

The table provides details on the data that was processed when the task ran.

  • The status can be Processing, Processed, or Failed.
  • Information about Total records, Processed records, and Errored records is also shown.
  • You can Download the data that was processed in CSV format and also Download Error File to understand why a particular record resulted in an error.

Note: If there are errors in processing the fetched data, the status is still set as ‘Processed’
