API Output Tool

The API Output tool allows users to display the contents of a data stream in the Results window as a comma-delimited, quote-qualified string. No configuration is needed for the tool.

The first record that displays in the Results window contains the field names, and each additional record contains a row of data from the incoming data stream.

The API Output tool outputs a maximum of 255 characters per row, and the data from each field is contained within double quotes. If a string value contains double quotes, each quote is replaced by two consecutive quotes. Blob fields display as the size of the blob (e.g., “14 Bytes”).
