6 The Data Load Page

Use the Data Load page to make more data available to your Oracle Autonomous Database. You can load data from files or databases, from links to external databases or cloud storage files, or from a live feed of data from cloud storage.

From the Data Load page, you can also explore the data in your autonomous database and manage your cloud storage locations.

To reach the Data Load page, click Data Load in the Database Actions page, or click the SelectorSelectoricon and select Data Load from the Data Tools menu in the navigation pane.
