    Running a test in the Process Designer does not allow anything to be committed to the database, even if the script contains a commit.

    To actually test, you'll have to put code in the test harness to test the expected outcomes for the various circumstances that you expect your handler to work with.

      For importing a csv file with contacts there's the import wizard.

      Hi Dietrik,,

      Import is not for contacts, trying to import custom object records which are not available in Import Wizard.

       

      Thanks,

      Custom objects are also supported by the import wizard.

      The OSvC server should not be used as an integration platform.

      Importing from files via server-side PHP is strongly discouraged.

      Instead, use CWS/S to get such data into OSvC.

      If it is possible to write code that can hit a CP page to fire off some PHP, then it should be possible to instead process the CSV file directly from that code and use CWS/S to import the data into OSvC.  That is, if for some reason using the data importer is not an option.
