The 8XX Bulk Add File Format template is located in Control Center > Orders > Manage Orders > Batch > Dedicated.
The template is a spreadsheet used to arrange the data to be loaded into the Batch Formatter application, then uploaded via the CenturyLink Protected Internet Delivery [QPID] utility for scripted uploads to the Control Center folders, or in Control Center > Orders > Manage Orders > Batch > Dedicated.
In the template Excel file, there are two tabs: 8XX Bulk Add Template and Required Field Key.
The 8XX Bulk Add Template tab is divided into three sections – the Header Record, Data Record and Trailer Record. Each field must be populated with the required information for the order to be provisioned successfully. The Required Field Key tab explains the required indicators for each field in the batch file.
First you'll need to download the template Excel file. Find out more about Header & Trailer Records, Data Records and the Required File Naming Convention. See the Dedicated 8XX Batch File Format Data Dictionary for details of each field in the batch file.
