8. Use the Provider

This section covers how to configure a pipeline batch that uses the file system provider to create and populate Sitecore items from the contents of a text file.

For this example, you will create a file that contains information about different cities. Each row in the file represents a single city. Each city will be represented in Sitecore as an item.

The synchronization process will read the cities from the file and create Sitecore items for each. If a Sitecore item already exists for a city in the file, the Sitecore item will be updated with the information from the file.
