Google Cloud Storage targets in synchronization tasks

You can use a single Google Cloud Storage object as a target in a synchronization task.
The following table describes the Google Cloud Storage target properties:
Property
Description
Connection
Name of the Google Cloud Storage target connection.
Target Object
Name of the Google Cloud Storage target object.
Child Object
This attribute is not applicable for Google Cloud Storage Connector.
Display target fields in alphabetical order
Displays target fields in alphabetical order. By default, fields appear in the order returned by the target system.
The following table describes the advanced properties for Google Cloud Storage targets:
Property
Description
Google Cloud Storage path
Overrides the Google Cloud Storage path that you specified in the connection.
Use the following format: gs://<bucket name> or gs://<bucket name>/<folder name>
This property is required in the following situations:
  • - You create a target at run time.
  • - The source is not a flat file.
Target file name
Optional. Overrides the Google Cloud Storage target object name.
Writer header
Determines whether the Secure Agent must write the header to the target file.
Number of Threads for Uploading Data to the Target
Specifies the number of threads that the Secure Agent must create to write data to the Google Cloud Storage target.
You can configure multi-threading to write data to the Google Cloud Storage target in parallel and improve the performance. Set the number of threads based on your system configuration. You might need to test different settings for optimal performance.
If you configure more than one thread, you must increase the Java heap size in the JVMOption3 field for DTM under the System Configuration Details section of the Secure Agent. You must then restart the Secure Agent for the changes to take effect.
Default is 1.
Order Target Data
Specifies whether the Secure Agent must retain the order of text data when it writes to the Google Cloud Storage target. You can retain the order of text data if you configure more than one thread to write text data to a Google Cloud Storage target.
Note: This property is not applicable for binary and string data types.
For example, if you specify five threads to write data to the target and select this option, the Secure Agent writes data to a local file and then splits data across multiple local files. The Secure Agent then writes data from the local files to the Google Cloud Storage target.
If you do not select this option, the Secure Agent writes data into five local files, writes data to the target, and then merges the file in the Google Cloud Storage target.
Default is selected.
Success File Directory
This attribute is not applicable for Google Cloud Storage Connector.
Error File Directory
This attribute is not applicable for Google Cloud Storage Connector.
Note: When you run a synchronization task and configure multiple threads to write data to a Google Cloud Storage target, the Secure Agent appends the carriage return (\r) or newline character (\n) and increases the length of the file.
