I’m using feed module to import csv file. and the content type includes file field. I added the external file path in the csv file (file column). but It's not working. Mapping includes:

Attachments: (field_file): File ID
Attachments: (field_file): Desciption

Feeds item: (feeds_item): item URL
Feeds item: (feeds_item): item GUID



How I can deal with Attachments and Feeds item in source section. What I should put in the source section for Attachments and Feeds item.

Thanks in advance

  • Is your file field set to allow only one value? Can you visit the item URLs and actually download the files, are they accessible? You need to add a lot more info to your question to be able to be helped.

Currently only files coming from a HTTP(s) source are supported in the D8 version of Feeds. So the sources for the files need to look like this:

Adding support for local file paths is planned: https://www.drupal.org/project/feeds/issues/2968671
