A batch is an upload session initiated by an end-user, with the purpose of importing data. Each batch will contain one file and one set of data from that file.
A batches can be queried to find all rows of data that were imported using our API, or exported to bring the sanitized data into your database. They can be downloaded, if you need to review their contents, or even automatically deleted if your data retention policies require it. To learn more about deleting batches, see here.
