tSalesforceWaveBulkExec properties

Component family

Business/Salesforce

 

Function

This component loads data into the Salesforce Analytics Cloud from a local CSV file.

Purpose

This component allows you to load data into the Salesforce Analytics Cloud from a local file.

Basic settings

Property Type

Either Built-In or Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

 

 

Built-In: No property data stored centrally.

 

 

Repository: Select the repository file in which the properties are stored. The connection fields that follow are completed automatically using the data retrieved.

 

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

Note

When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, Component List presents only the connection components in the same Job level.

User Name and Password

Enter the Web service authentication details.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

 

End Point

Enter the WebService URL required to connect to Salesforce. For example, https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/32.0. Note that the version in the URL should be 32.0 or later.

 

Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-In or stored remotely in the Repository.

  • For the fields of numeric type (for example, byte, short, int, long, float, double, and BigDecimal), their length and precision values need to be specified. The default length and precision values are 10 and 2, and you can also specify their custom values in the schema editor.

  • For the fields of date type, you need to specify the format of the date in the schema editor. For more information about the supported date format, see Analytics Cloud External Data Format Reference.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

The Schema list and the Editor schema button disappear if the Custom JSON Metadata check box is selected.

This component offers the advantage of the dynamic schema feature. This allows you to retrieve unknown columns from source files or to copy batches of columns from a source without mapping each column individually. For further information about dynamic schemas, see Talend Studio User Guide.

This dynamic schema feature is designed for the purpose of retrieving unknown columns of a table and is recommended to be used for this purpose only; it is not recommended for the use of creating tables.

 

 

Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

 

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

 

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

 

Operation

Select an operation to perform on the dataset:

  • Append: Append all data to the dataset. Create a dataset if it does not exist.

  • Upsert: Insert or update rows in the dataset. Create a dataset if it does not exist.

  • Overwrite: Create a new dataset with the given data, and replace dataset if it already exists.

  • Delete: Delete the rows from the dataset.

Note

  • A metadata JSON file is required for the Append, Upsert, and Delete operations.

  • The data and metadata for the Append and Upsert operations must match the dataset on which the operation is happening. All columns, dimensions, and measures must match exactly.

  • The Append operation is not allowed if you specify any column as the primary key.

  • You must specify one (and only one) column as the primary key on which the Upsert or Delete operation is based. You can do that by clicking Edit schema and selecting the check box next to the column you want to set as the primary key.

  • The metadata for the Delete operation must be a subset of the dataset columns.
