Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 mappings overview

Use the Mapping Designer to create a mapping. When you create a mapping, you configure the source and target to represent a single Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 object.
Describe the flow of data from source and target along with the required transformations before the Secure Agent writes data to the target. When you create a mapping task, select the mapping that you want to use. Use the Mapping Task wizard to create a mapping task. The mapping task processes data based on the data flow logic you define in the mapping.
When you run an elastic mapping to read from and write to Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, ensure that the source and target connection are associated with the same Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account.
Note: When you create and run an elastic mapping that reads a complex file source of size 128 MB or more, the Secure Agent writes incorrect data and creates multiple target files without overriding the existing target.
