Thanks Ivan.

It got resolved.

Below are the learnings.

1) Always make sure the header row of the csv file, should have the attribute names in capital letters

2) good to use, data format as "Decimal" for your attribute, if you want upload numeric values

3) Always use the "Get Template" functionality and fill up your data in it, rather than creating the csv file from scratch. Esp for timeprofiles, the time date format is really confusing

Hi Venkat,

By the error MSG provided: "List of columns provided for data integration uploads is invalid" I assume there is something wrong in the attribute names provided...please can you check that?

If you are still unable to figure out, feel free to upload the csv file and screenshot of MDT configuration as well.

Best regards,
