Flat File Targets

Flat File Targets

A mapping that is running in a Hadoop environment can write to a flat file target that is in a native environment.
Consider the following limitations when you configure a flat file target in a mapping that runs in a Hadoop environment:
  • The Data Integration Service truncates the target files and reject files before writing the data. When you use a flat file target, you cannot append output data to target files and reject files.
  • The Data Integration Service can write to a file output for a flat file target. When you have a flat file target in a mapping, you cannot write data to a command.
