[ServiceStudio] Entity record Import

By Robert Chanphakeo on 29 Aug 2011
Add a feature to allow records to be imported into an entity table, by selecting an entity and selecting "import from excel" option.

A developer can then select an excel file to import/populate an entity record, such as a lookup table.

Note: I'm aware that this feature can be implemented into our own web app, such as a bootstrap application can be created, but it be good to have the feature built into ServiceStudio.

why would it be good?

what would be the advantage be?
It would be good so then you dont need to write a program to populate lookup tables, (ie saving you time).

Hello Goncalo

Hi,

Just right click over the entity you've defined:



If, meanwhile, you change the entity, you can always update the action that was created to take into consideration new elements (Menu item Update Action to Bootstrap Entiteis From Excel)...

You can also create a new entity from an existing excel, by right clicking on the Entities folder




Hope this helps.
Cheers
Thanks alot Goncalo
