Once you've loaded your PII data to the Contributor Node (CN), you will be able to prepare your token data (and attribute data if applicable) for loading into the Data Republic platform.

This article covers how to prepare files with:

  1. Only tokens
  2. Both tokens and attribute data (if permitted)

Prerequisites:

  • You have downloaded your tokenized file from the Contributor Node

Prepare only tokens file

1. Using whichever software you prefer, remove the 'Personid' column, so that the file only contains the tokens column.

This file is now ready for loading to the Data Republic platform.

Prepare tokens and attribute data

1. You should have a table with tokens and person IDs (similar to the one on the left, below). 

Separately, you should also have table with your Person IDs and their respective attributes (similar to the one on the right, below). This would have been created when you split your PII from your attribute data.

2. Using whichever software you prefer (R, Python, Excel, etc.), join the two tables by the Person ID field, and remove the Person ID field.

This file is now ready for loading to the Data Republic platform.
