Manual Publishing

You are the data pipeline

What is manual publishing?

Manual publishing is the process of downloading data (usually as a .csv or .json) from your database and uploading it onto the Open Data Portal. On the positive side, this is the quickest way to get data onto the open data portal. On the negative side, you will have to repeat this process every time update your dataset so it is not a good system if your data change frequently.
If your dataset needs to be updated Monthly, Weekly, Daily, or Hourly this is not a good option.
