      Description

      the documentation for the attributes and definitions shows an attribute named "delimiter", with following description.

      quote:
      One or more characters that separate records in a delimited text file, such as CSV. Use a 4-digit hex ascii code syntax \uXXXX for a non-printable delimiter.
      end quote

      so it is obvious, that a record separator is meant. there is another attribute: "fieldDelimiter". which is from its name and description to define the delimiter/separator between fields of a row.

      The issue is, that in the standard definition of the storage plugin, the attribute "delimiter" is used as the delimiter between the fields and not the records. And it also works correctly like this.

      When I try to add the attribute "fieldDelimiter" to the storage configuration then I get following error:

      error (Invalid JSON mapping)
