When to use this connector
Use this connector to create flows that work with files in Google Cloud Storage.
Creating a connection
To connect to Google Cloud Storage, you will need to enable the Interoperability API. To enable it, go to Google Cloud console->Storage->Settings->Interoperability->Enable and create an access key pair, which includes an Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
Step 1. In the Connections window click the
+ button, select Cloud Storage.
Step 2. Select Google Storage
Step 3. Enter connection parameters
- Endpoint - the web service host. It defaults to
- Bucket - the bucket name.
- Directory - the directory under the bucket. This parameter is optional.
- Files - the actual file name or a wildcard file name, for example,
- Headers - optional HTTP headers.
- Access Key - the username.
- Secret - password.
- Add Suffix When Creating Files in Transformation - you can select one of the predefined suffixes for the files created using this connection. For example, if you select
uuidas a suffix and the original file name is
dest.csv, Integrator will create files with the name
dest_uuid.csv, where uuid is a globally unique identifier such as
- Enable Wildcard File Name - if there are multiple source files in a folder, you can specify an algorithm which will be used to select an actual source file to process. For example, if Files is set to
oldestis selected, Integrator will always select the oldest file in the folder which matches the wildcard
- Override Wildcard File Name set for Connection - if Wildcard File Names are allowed, the option to Override Wildcard File Name set for Connection is enabled, and the file name entered in the FROM field of the transformation is a wildcard file name, the system will override the file name entered at the connection level. The default behavior is to use the wildcard file name that was entered when the connection was configured.
- Archive file before copying to - Integrator can archive files, using one of the supported algorithms (zip or gzip), before copying them to cloud storage. Since cloud storage is typically a paid service, it can save money and time if you choose to archive files.
