What is the best way to import data via Excel or CSV on a scheduled basis and associate each row/record with an account? I'm assuming entity list filters can then be used to sort the records based on the user's account so that they can only see the records that pertain to them. Thanks
It could depend on the volume of data. I would suggest looking at Kingswaysoft.com SSIS tools. Using that, you could import the data to CDS from the files (you will likely need to create a custom entity to represent the data you are importing).
Then, from the Portal side, create the entity list but setup entity permissions to restrict viewing to just data belonging to the contacts (based on the account they belong to).
Hope that helps.
I suggest Power Platform Data Flows, a tool inside the Power Platform which you can accomplish all your data work there. and it's already there for you with no additional cost.
