Bulk file upload technical specifications

The Data Exchange Bulk File Upload Technical Specifications is intended for organisations wanting to use bulk uploads to submit their data to the Data Exchange.

The document provides technical details about the data format and system requirements, and are primarily aimed at IT managers, system developers and software providers. From time to time, the specifications will be updated to reflect enhanced functionality and features. These changes can occur through a combination of user feedback as part of our continuous improvement process, or as new program activities come on board.

The specification for bulk upload covers the following:

  • Interface details – technical infrastructure, security and authentication
  • Reference data
  • Bulk Upload XML File – data formats, commonly used data terms, examples
  • Error processing

More information about bulk file uploads can be found on the Task Card – Upload Methods.
