  • The data in json file needs to be in ascending timestamp order.
  • Your asset is a performance asset (not supported yet for simulation asset).
  • Variables that are mentioned in the json file must match the selected aspect.
  • The maximum volume of time series data cannot exceed 1 GB for performance asset in an import job.
  • Import jobs for performance assets are allowed for data in future upto 7 days only.
  • Import jobs for performance assets are rejected if timestamps with higher precision than milliseconds are used.
  • You have the Asset Manager administrator role.
