I want to upload a csv file to HANA through XSJS.

My FileUploader definition in my .xml file:

     placeholder="Upload your CSV file"
     tooltip="Upload your csv file to define the threshold"
     text="Upload File"

The definition of handleUploadPress in my .js file:

handleUploadPress : function(event) {
    var fileLoader = this.byId("fileUploader");

The response of upload_csv.xsjs:

Request execution failed due to missing or invalid XSRF token

What can I do to solve this issue? I already tried some other example available on the internet, but always end up with this error. Even if I try to manually request the XSRF token and send a manual request to the xsjs service.

I guess you have configured following in the .xsaccess file:

"prevent_xsrf" : true,

This activated security feature will require a XSRF token in the header of any request, which does not have the request method GET or HEAD.

As deactivating security features is unwise, you could use a third party library like Papa Parse to parse the CSV on the client side and submit the parsed data to the XSJS file as AJAX call with a JSON body including the required header. Such a workaround is anyway safer than uploading files to a server where you would have to run antivirus scans and so on.
