Generate CSV same as XML file from BatchExport

As given in the PMR:

We wanted to have InfoSphere Reference data management to support BatchExport API to:

  1. Allow both "set" and "value" data to be included in the output CSV file

  2. Should allow modification of column name from either of "set" & "value" data while exporting into CSV file.

    Hi Mohammad,

    As you are probably aware, IBM's strategic solution for managing reference data is Watson Knowledge Catalog on the Cloud Pak for Data platform, that's where all investment is directed towards.

    Given the current RDM architecture maturity and IBM's strategy, we are rejecting this enhancement request.

    As I understand, IBM MDM Support team has suggested a workaround, I hope that helps in the mean time.
