File Panels

File panels allow you to import files into DataStation from disk. Every time the panel is run the file is read again.

Load CSV data


When DataStation understands the file format (because it recognized the file extension or because you overrode the file content type) it will try to put data in array of objects format.

The exceptions to this are JSON files (they can be any structure) and when you override the content type to be plain text.

With Server

If you define an SSH connection you will be able to select the server to read your file remotely over SSH.
