Allow multiple csv import in transformation flow

Gawie Herbst shared this idea 1 year ago

It would be nice if the current CSV import could also do a bulk import of csv files, specified with an asterisk

eg:

sales*(.csv)

Hi Gawie,

what a great idea! And I liked it so much that I have raised an internal enhancement request for it (YFN-9327).

I'm assuming you are thinking of a scenario where you've got a folder full of incremental backups, Sales_20170101.csv, Sales_20170102.csv, Sales_20170103.csv etc.. Is that right?

regards,

David

Hi Dave,

Correct, this would allow you to import all the current incremental files as well as future files without editing or changing the transformation flow - provided that the layout of the files is the same.

Thank you for raising a request.

Hey Gawie,

Hope you are well!

This Idea has now been assigned to me and I've checked the Jira ID and there is no current ETA for this enhancement :(

However, I will be sure to update you as soon as there is one!

Best Wishes,

Lesley

I second this - I recently had to develop a solution outside Yellowfin (in SSIS) to achieve the above. It would be really great if this functionality could be added to YF.

Hey Edgar,

Thanks for letting us know, this helps as the more clients that request something the higher of a priority it becomes! I will inform the devs about this :)

Thanks,

Lesley
