Uploading and downloading files with MxLoader

One of the new features of MxLoader 7.2 (NextGen) is the capability to upload and download files from Maximo.

Any text field can be exported to a file by simply prepending the attribute name with FILETXT: prefix. In this example, all the long descriptions of assets will be exported to text files under the Assets subfolder.

In a similar way, it is possible to upload large text from a file with a similar syntax. Note that in this case you don’t need the FILETXT: prefix in the header.

It is also possible to upload binary data using the FileEnc: prefix. For example you can upload attachments as described in this post.
