Import data via general importer format files to the system

The general import format is used for importing data to FA via API. The supported options are the same as with the CSV formats explained under Importing, except the order of the columns does not have to be correct, but instead a header row is added with the column codes as provided in the documentation. An example of a simple security import CSV in general importer format:

NOKIA.HE;Nokia Corporation;E;EUR;ACTIVE
