Directory Source in Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Sources

Directory Source in Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Sources

You can select the type of source from which you want to read data.
You can select the following type of sources from the
Source Type
option under the advanced properties for a Microsoft Azure Blob Storage data object read operation:
  • File
  • Directory
The content type of the blob must be
application/x-gzip
to read compressed flat files for both File and Directory source types.
Use the following rules and guidelines to select
Directory
as the source type:
  • The directory read is not applicable to the binary file type.
  • All the source files in the directory must contain the same metadata.
  • All the files must have data in the same format. For example, delimiters, header fields, and escape characters must be same.
  • All the files under a specified directory are parsed. The files under subdirectories are not parsed.
  • The connector does not perform any validation if there are multiple blob formats in the directory you select and might result into errors.
