This interface exports contact data from a database, query, or contact list. Watson Campaign Automation exports the results to a CSV file, then adds that file to the FTP account associated with the current session. You can copy the results file to Stored Files in Watson Campaign Automation.

Note: If the database is a Double Opt‐in database, Watson Campaign Automation only exports confirmed contacts. In addition, the database security settings that allow you to use this operation are, by default, disabled for all Double Opt‐In databases.
