Valve to read input from a file and add the content to a property on the current item.

Valve operates on the Current Item Set and will be executed on every item.

Configuration property content_type determines how the destination value is encoded and if content_type is text (matches content type: 'text/*'), value is stored as plain text, otherwise value is assumed binary and will be stored in base64.

File will be read using the charset specified in the charset parameter in content_type. If charset isn’t specified, the default charset will be used.

Valve operates on the Current Item Set and will process all items surviving the common item filtering rules.
