Run Export Automation lets you leverage automations to export data from a Dataflow.
1. Configure Your Destination
2. Add Run Export Automation in Your Dataflow
3. Run Export Automation Options
Before using this node in a Dataflow, you must configure an Export Data Automation. We currently support exporting data to Azure Blob Storage and Google Drive.
Note: This Automation must be created before using the Run Export Automation node in a Dataflow.
Add Run Export Automation to any node in your Dataflow. Select any node and use the Transform (+) button to open the list of options to select Run Export Automation. You could work with the node in the Dataflow tab or use the Properties panel.
The Run Export Automation node is broken up into four (4) main sections. Read along to see how easy it is to write new data files to your Azure or Google Drive account.
The first option lets you choose an Automation (step 1). In this case, we're choosing to export to Microsoft Azure.
The second field is a text box that allows you to type a customer file name.
Note: This file name will appear in Azure after the export.
Select one of the following four (4) file formats.
Check Compress to minimize the file size and Always Export if you want the data to export anytime the Automation is activated.
