Loading Foundation data in bulk
BMC Helix Platform enables the administrators to load Foundation data in bulk. Bulk data loading is the process of copying the Foundation data sets from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and loading the data sets to BMC Helix Platform. This capability makes the Foundation data available to the consuming applications and ensures onboarding of users in the organization.
To load the Foundation data in bulk, BMC Helix Platform provides a Data Management Console application.
