CsvServices - Mendix App Store

CsvServices

The easiest and fastest way to get your excel data in and out of Mendix applications. Creates a Rest endpoint for every entity in your application, allowing you to upload and download data in comma separated values format. You will get the following endpoint for all entities: http:///ws-doc// You can upload multiple entities in one automated script using curl to post different csv files. Associations can be included in the csv files. This gives you a fast and reliable way to initialize application databases. You can download all objects in an entity in csv format using GET operation. Again you can automate this in a script using curl command. Some reporting tools also allow reading online csv files, for example R. This enables you to use a 3rd party reporting tool on mendix data without manually downloading the data.

I just got this working on my project. A couple of observation to note, from my experience: -- This does NOT create the Entity. -- Attributes need to be defined in the Entity BEFORE the import process It was my assumption that the script would import and create the Entity as well as populate the Attributes. The lack of creating these steps is never stated in the documentation, but merely my assumption. I still like the capability of CsvServices. It will save me a lot of time working with test data locally. Thanks!
