Tool Configuration

  1. In Output Config, click Select to select a file from your OneDrive instance.

  3. When a new file selection is made in the File Picker, the selected file box will display the path to the selected file. The selection displayed in this box cannot be manually edited and must be edited through the file picker.
  4. Select a File format: Avro, CSV, or JSON.
  5. In Existing File Behavior, select an action to take when uploading to a file path that already exists in OneDrive.
    • Overwrite: Overwrite option will delete the existing file and write the new file contents
    • Rename: The Rename option will rename the file(appending a unique number to the end of the filename)
    • Abort: When Abort is selected, the file will not upload if there is another file with the same name
  6. Select Apply to save your configuration. This is similar to the save capabilities of other connectors but does not save the actual workflow. Applying the configurations will allow the configurations to be used in the current workflow. Click the canvas to save the configurations.
  7. Run the workflow.
