Does Digital Ocean have any tools or services to facilitate the importing of a csv file stored in a DO Space into a DO Managed PostgreSQL database? Ideally we’d like to build a process so that we can upload a csv file into Spaces and it will auto-import into PostgreSQL.

Hi there,

I believe that there is no such tool out of the box. However what I would suggest is putting together a small script that would fetch the file from the Spaces, parse it and import it to your database.

You could let this script run as a corn job every few minutes so that when a new file is uploaded it will be processed.
