      Hi Mithun,

      Great article. I did all this steps, but I would like to use CSV template. And unfortunatelly, fields only turn up in xml template, but not in csv. How can I add fields into a csv template?

      Best regards,

      Hi Mithun,

      thanks for the helpful blog.

      But is it also possible to extend a migration template with a custom extension node in standard BO?

      Thanks & regards,

      Hi Fabian,

      Currently it is not possible to extend custom extension node to migration template, since process extension scenario doesn't support that.

      Thanks, Pradeep.
