Hello Parimal,

MagicDraw has a no cost plugin, CSV Import plugin. You may import data from the CSV file. To install this plugin, click menu Help> Resource/Plugin Manager. You will find the CSV Import under (no cost) section.

Here's the sample how plugin works.

I prepared the data like this.

The call up the plugin with menu File> Import From> Import CSV...
First step we will select the CSV file that we prepared and choose the importing location and element type to be imported.

Then we will map the properties. Owner will specify the container where the Signal will be imported. Diagram will be the diagram that will present the importing Signal.

Here's the result.

Please let us know if you may have different scenario.

Best Regards,
Supat P.
