How do I blank out an attribute in a profile when I import a CSV of users?

I know that you can bulk update attributes in the Okta user profile via a CSV. If the CSV has a value in a column, it will update the corresponding attribute. What is the code to use when I want to blank out an attribute?

Thanks

Hey Isaac

Thanks for the Community participation. There are a few moving parts to consider with regards to importing from CSV that could be better explained and demonstrated through a support ticket. We'd be happy to work with you on what your options are. Typically, when creating and updating profile attributes, there has to be a value provided.
