IMPORTING FROM directory with alteryx files.

This bridge establishes a connection with a choosed bucket in order to extract the physical metadata. It is critical that the parameters are filled correctly in order to satisfy the local connection requirements on the client workstation that runs the bridge. Please refer to the individual parameter's tool tips for more detailed examples.

IMPORTANT! The bridge uses aws-java-sdk-s3.
The easiest way to get it - is to download ZIP archive from
and extract all JAR files from 'third-party/lib/' folder and aws-java-sdk-*.jar from 'lib' folder to '${MODEL_BRIDGE_HOME}\java\S3'
Also, You can use apache maven to download only necessary JARs

-m 8G
-m 2500M

-j <Java Runtime Environment command line options>
This option must be the last one in the Miscellaneous parameter as all the text after -j is passed "as is" to the JRE, e.g.
-j -Dname=value -Xms1G

-jre <Java Runtime Environment full path name>
