Re: Creat things using a csv file_datashape

If you have the ThingTemplate already then all you need is the EntityServices/CreateThing service

yes you can create a CSV file with a list of names etc. you can name the columns anything and create a datashape to match.

Then use your service to provide the appropriate parameters from the parsed infotable (use csv parser or parsely) to loop through create entity.

hi ,

thank you for response, No I don't have the thingtemplate created, I want to creat all entities (thingTemplate, things,..)  from a csv file but I don't know what I should put in the datashape.

 

if anyone already did this, please share.

 

Thank you in advance.
