    How do I download the data that is hosted in on the backend services? I need to be able to pull down that data either in a text or csv file, how do I go about doing this?

    Hello Garling,

    You can work with the data items using the Backend Services client SDKs. For example, in a .NET application you can convert a dataset from Backend Services to CSV or TXT format.

    If you have the data already saved as separate files in the Files installation of your project, you can download it from the portal, REST API, client SDKs.

    Could you please specify your scenario in greater depth if you need further assistance?

    I am storing barcode data that is scanned by the app into the backend service. What I need to do is take all the data from my backed and download a csv file. I looked through the SDK's and could not find a a way to take the data and create a file from it.

    Hello Garling,

    Basically the SDKs give you the option to work with the data through a REST API. There are no options to export it to a file, but you can easily do this with the tools available in the programming languages that you are using.

    Let's assume that you are using a .NET development environment.

    1. Create a simple .NET project or a one that you are using for processing your data.
    2. Create a model for the content type in Backend Services that you are using to save the data from the barcodes.
    3. Get the data objects from the server.
    4. Deserialize the .NET objects into CSV, JSON, TXT or whatever format you need to export them using the available tools in the .NET framework.

    I hope that this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

    Hi Garling,

    Sorry for the wrong links. Here are the same steps with the working articles from our documentation

    1. Create a simple .NET project or a one that you are using for processing your data.
    2. Create a model for the content type in Backend Services that you are using to save the data from the barcodes.
    3. Get the data objects from the server.
    4. Deserialize the .NET objects into CSV, JSON, TXT or whatever format you need to export them using the available tools in the .NET framework.


    If you need more help, we'll be glad to assist you.
