Directory - Data Discovery Plugin


CSV plugin can consume data from correctly formatted CSV files

directory plugin can be pointed to a folder from where CSV, Excel and JSON files automatically will be loaded. When loaded, default settings according to the file type will be used to create a corresponding Data Discovery data source.

When a new file of the correct type is added to the specified folder, Data Discovery will automatically create it as a new data source.

If changes are made to an existing file in the specified folder, the data will automatically reload.

Adding the Data Source

The CSV Directory plugin is a 'Files' data source.

    Bear in mind that the


    folder must be accessible from the TARGIT server’s point of view.

    Note: The Schedule options are only available for Url types. For Local files, data is reloaded automatically when the source file is updated and saved.

    Click the ‘Set’ button to configure how often to check this data source for updated data.

    The scheduling options can be set to: Minutes, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Yearly.

    Find the most filled row

    Select an option for detecting a row that best represents the data you want to load:

    • Autodetect
      • Automatically finds the row with the most filled columns.
    • Skip X Lines
      • Skips the first X rows and starts loading data from the next row.
    • Do nothing
      • Will assume data is available from the first row.


    If necessary, select the encoding with which the CSV file has been saved. Select from UTF-8, Windows-1252 and Windows-1251 encoding.

    File without headers

    Check this option if your CSV file does not have headers. When loaded, columns will be named “Column1, Column2, etc.”

    Create Cubes for each file

    If checked, Data Discovery will automatically create a default cube for each of the loaded files.
