2304614 - Different types of Extension for Connector files

Symptom

This KBA will explain about different types of Extension files that can be used for connectors.

Environment

SuccessFactors Learning Management System

Resolution

Connector will accept below 4 types of extension files:

txt,TXT

csv,CSV,

zip,ZIP,

xml,XML

To accept these extension types we need to add below settings by navigating to System Admin ->Configuration ->System Configuration ->Connectors

connector.input.default.file.extension=.txt
connector.input.file.processingorder=txt,TXT,csv,CSV,zip,ZIP,xml,XML
item.connector.input.file.multiple=true

IMPORTANT: All connectors will pick up files with ".csv" extension according to property "connector.input.file.processingorder=txt,TXT,csv,CSV,zip,ZIP"

However, to process a csv file (containing comma separated values), it can only be achieved by either setting the delimiter to process a comma delimited file  (“connector.input.file.columnDelimiter=,”) or by using the following connector property "connector.input.file.format.csv.enable=true". To process both file extensions, ensure that both ".txt" and ".csv" extensions delimit by the same value within the file E.G pipe or comma (as per connector property  “connector.input.file.columnDelimiter=|”). If the following property "connector.input.file.format.csv.enable=true" both ".csv" and ".txt" files can only be comma delimited regardless of what is set at columnDelimiter connector property.
