This is a minimal Smartsheet sample that demonstrates how to
- Import a sheet
- Load a sheet
- Loop through the rows
- Check for rows that meet a criteria
- Update cell values
- Write the results back to the original sheet
This sample scans a sheet for rows where the value of the "Status" column is "Complete" and sets the "Remaining" column to zero.
This is implemented in the
evaluateRowAndBuildUpdates() method which you should modify to meet your needs.
Update the rwsheet.properties file (located in src/main/resources) with an API access token, obtained from the Smartsheet Account button, under Personal settings.
Alternatively, you can specify the access token with a system environment variable named `SMARTSHEET_ACCESS_TOKEN`.
Build the application
- You may need to add a reference to the Maven library
Run the application
- The rows marked "Complete" will have the "Remaining" value set to 0. (Note that you will have to refresh in the desktop application to see the changes)
This sample contains a runtime Maven dependency on the Log4j logging framework as an example on how to enable post deployment logging for the Smartsheet Java SDK. A log4j.properties file located in /src/main/resources shows the details for both a console and file appender. Logging to the console and a log file are enabled by default.
