By uploading comma-separated value (.csv) files, you can quickly contribute important information in several operations in the SecurityScorecard platform:
- Claiming, adding, or requesting removal of domains or IP addresses in Digital Footprint
- Adding companies to a portfolio
This gives you more control over the information in your Scorecard.
To ensure successful uploads without errors, and to expedite reviews of your uploaded files, use the following formatting guidelines and best practices for your .csv files:
Columns and rows
- Apply a heading to each column, even if the file has only one column. Although some platform features may accept columns without headings, include them is a best practice and to prevent potential problems.
- Place each entry on its own line. Do not sequence multiple entries horizontally with delimiters.
Examples for uploading .csv files with IPs and domains in your Digital Footprint:
- If a value includes commas, escape the entire value with quotation marks (“).
Example for uploading a .csv file with names and addresses:
Anton Cermak, “Havelská, 11000, Prague”
- The maximum number of accepted rows varies according to different platform .csv upload services. The platform displays an error message if you try to upload too many rows.
- You can use any letters, numerals, or special characters.
- You can use uppercase or lowercase letters.
- The .csv parser is case sensitive, so capitalize letters when you intend to.
- Character limit varies according to different platform .csv upload services. The platform displays an error message If you exceed a limit.
