Customer segment descriptions input file

Use a MemberGroupDescription.csv input file to load information to create descriptive information in multiple languages for the customer segments that belong to a store. After you load the data, business users can manage the new descriptive information for customer segments with the Marketing tool.

You can extract the descriptions for customer segment objects with the Data Extract utility to create a MemberGroupDescription.csv input file that you then can load with the Data Load utility. For example, if you want to copy or move customer segments and related data between stores or instances, such as for creating one or more test environments. Sample configuration files are provided for you to use with the Data Extract utility to extract customer segment description data in multiple languages from the MBRGRPDESC database table.

Sample configuration files are also provided for you to use with the Data Load utility to load the customer segment description data. When you load the MemberGroupDescription.csv file, the Data Load utility populates the MBRGRPDESC database table.

When you load descriptive information for customer segments, you might need to load additional information. For example, if the customer segments do not exist in your target store, you must first load the data to create the segments. Then, you can load descriptive information in multiple languages for the segments and load conditions for the segments. For more information about the customer segment-related data that you can load, see:
Note: A store must be configured to support a language before the descriptive information in that language can display in Management Center.
