CSVFileImportValve

Valve to read input from a Character-Separated Values (CSV) file as defined in RFC 4180.

Input values can be separated by any character. Records must be separated by line break (CRLF).

Valve will create items or update existing items in Current Item Set based on input records. Item property names are defined either by using the attributes configuration property or by using a header in the CSV-file.

Valve operates on the Current Item Set and will process all items surviving the common item filtering rules.
