Add a pipeline to read the source file

Abstract

How to create a pipeline in Sitecore Data Exchange Framework for reading the source file.

You must implement a pipeline that reads data from the text file, iterates the data, and passes the data to the pipeline that handles a single row of data.

To add a pipeline to read the source file:

  1. Navigate to sitecore/System/Data Exchange/File System Provder Test Tenant/Pipelines.

    Tenant Pipelines folder in the content tree
  2. Add a new Pipeline item and name it Read City Info from File Pipeline.

  3. Make the new item the first pipeline.

    Moving the Read City Info from File pipeline in the content tree

Note

The order of the pipelines in the folder is not important. However, when a pipeline calls another pipeline, it is helpful to place the pipeline that calls the other pipeline before the pipeline it calls.
