In this example, player is used for the vertex_player.csv file. For the player tag, choose Column 1 for the age property, and choose Column 2 for the name property.
    • In the Map Edges section, click the + Bind Datasource button, select bind source file in the dialog box, and click the Confirm button, the edge_follow.csv file is chosen.
