Object Data Type

An Object data type is a method for encoding key-value pairs. A single field value may contain one or more sets of key-value pairs.

An Object data type is identified as a set of nested objects in the following format:

{"New York":"NY"}


  • Individual values of an Object type must have unique keys. Values, however, may be repeated.

  • The order of key-value pairs is not guaranteed.

  • The\nand\tescaped characters are supported in inputs for this data type.


The Cloud Portal recognizes up to 250 unique keys in a column of Object data type.
