Importing data

To import data from Microsoft to RelativityOne using Purview Sync, you will need to have the application installed and configured properly. For more information, see Installing Purview Sync.


Before importing data, consider the following:

Setting up review sets in Microsoft

To set up a review set in Microsoft, see Microsoft's documentation.

RelativityOne checks Microsoft every 60 seconds on the job status. The collected job status information includes:

  • Whether the job has started or not.

  • Whether the job has completed successfully or with failures.


The Review Set Export job will produce 1 to 3 download links, each hosting .zip files that contain contents of the review set export. The Transfer job will download the .zip file from Microsoft server to the processing source location you selected.

Once a Transfer job completes, it kicks off an Extract job which extracts the .zip file.

To import the review sets from Microsoft to the RelativityOne,

  1. Navigate to the Import tab.

  2. Click the Sign In button.
    A pop-up window appears to sign into Microsoft.
