Overview

The CSV connector is a system provided connector that is generally used during implementation for substituting a connector which has not yet been implemented. It allows you to define the identifier, the schema and an image.

The CSV connector reads, writes and deletes from a CSV file, providing a mechanism for performing test scenarios without the need for a live target system.

Technical Requirements

Schema

Fields in a CSV connector schema refer to the individual CSV heading fields in the target CSV file.

TIP: Heading fields of a CSV file are the corresponding values in the first row.

Taking the following CSV file as an example:

id,name
1,james
2,fred
3,bob
TIP: The available heading fields would be id and name.

The schema provider for this connector will retrieve the available headings as string fields.
