Regarding preprocessing and postprocessing commands, what types of commands can be run?  I need to run stored procedures on my destination.

Hi Sam,

Thanks so much for reaching out! We've verified with development that you can run shell scripts using pre- and post-processing commands. So, you should be able to use your SQL client in the shell script to invoke a stored procedure.
