The Bulk Import works with the csv (comma delimited) file format. These files can be created using Excel (or any other compatible format).
Encoding in UTF-8 and UTF-8-BOM is supported.
However, the general requirements mentioned in this page applies to all three types of imports.
- The fields are separated by commas (
,) or semicolons (
- Start tags are prefixed with the number sign (
- New line / carriage returns / extra delimiters are ignored
- Starting a new line with the
#ignoretag, ignores the entire line during the import process and can be used to write headers or comments in the file.
When creating the csv file with a text editor or similar, double quotes (
"") must be escaped with an extra double quote. In addition, the entire field must be double quoted. See examples below.
Quoted TLML Syntax
String NLU Variable value
1"""New York""" 2
For string NLU Variable values, Groovy also permits single quotes, and they can be added to the csv file without having to be escaped:
1‘New York’ 2
