This KBA explains the different types of Extension files that can be used for connectors.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning


Connector will accept below 4 types of extension files:

  • txt,TXT
  • csv,CSV,
  • zip,ZIP,
  • xml,XML

To accept these extension types, add the settings below by navigating to System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Connectors


IMPORTANT: All connectors will pick up files with ".csv" extension according to property "connector.input.file.processingorder=txt,TXT,csv,CSV,zip,ZIP"

  • Processing a csv file (containing comma separated values) can only be achieved by either setting the delimiter to process a comma delimited file (“connector.input.file.columnDelimiter=,”) or by using the following connector property "connector.input.file.format.csv.enable=true".
  • To process both file extensions, ensure that both ".txt" and ".csv" extensions delimit by the same value within the file E.G pipe or comma (as per connector property  “connector.input.file.columnDelimiter=|”).
  • If the following property "connector.input.file.format.csv.enable=true" both ".csv" and ".txt" files can only be comma delimited regardless of what is set at columnDelimiter connector property.
