CSV File Creation Plugin

Available: on-premises, cloud


This plugin is used for exporting the CSV file for a batch. It transforms the batch.xml file to a CSV file format acceptable and exports it to the final CSV export folder location configured in the “CSV Creation Final Export Folder” property. The CSV file is created using the batch.xml file for the document level fields present. If the switch is ON then a CSV file for batch is created.
