Supported Data Types

This guide provides an overview of the supported data types that can be imported to and exported from the Relational Knowledge Graph System (RKGS).


By following this guide, you’ll learn which data types you can import to and export from the RKGS, the available Rel functionality around them, and how to compress them successfully.

For detailed documentation on CSV and JSON data import and export, see the accompanying Data Import and Export guides.
