Uploading a local file is as simple as dropping a file into the upload container and can be broken down into a few easy steps.

  • Go to the 'Upload Data' page from the left-side navigation and click on Local Files

  • Fill out model schema fields using this schema reference

  • Validate your file; errors will be displayed on this page

  • 'Start Job' to create a file import job for your local file

    • You’ll be taken to the Job Status tab to see your local file uploads

  • Go to Job Status Tab to see your local file uploads

Local File Upload Model Schema

Model schema parameters are a way of organizing model inference data to ingest to Arize. When configuring your schema, be sure to match your file column headers with the model schema. Use a form or a simple JSON-based schema to specify the column mapping.
