Import Tool enables a user to import bulk data into a specific form's table by retrieving the CSV, XLS or XLSX file from a form field and doing a simple column-to-field mapping.
It is formerly known as CSV Import Tool in Joget Workflow v4.
Figure 1: CSV Import Tool Properties
|File Upload Form||Specify the source Form where File Upload element resides.|
|Upload Field ID||File Upload element ID in the specified form above.|
|Store Data Form|
Specify on where to store the data by choosing a target form.
How storing works?
The target form's store binder will be called upon for data storage.
Post Form Submission Processing
Any Tool mapped under Post Form Submission Processing of the target form will be triggered each time a record updated or created.
Important: The tool mapped will be triggered regardless of the Run Tool on attribute.
Map the source file's CSV values to the target form fields.
|Key Column Number|
Column number that holds the primary key value.
If nothing is defined, a UUID will be generated and assigned when importing.
|Start From Row Number||Row number to start importing data. Integer only, starts from 0.|
Define other values that can not be found in the CSV file such as Foreign Key value associations data. You may also define hard-coded value here too.
|Validate data?||Data to be imported will be validated in according to the form's fields' validations.|
UTF-8 Encoding Checking?
|Check if the file is encoded with UTF-8.|
|Useful debugging information will be printed out in the server log when Debug Mode is turned on.|
