A Temporary Storage connection is configured using the Temporary Storage connector, establishing access to temporary storage on the agent machine. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more Temporary Storage activities associated with that connection to be used either as a source to provide data to an operation or script, or as a target to consume data in an operation or script.
Creating or Editing a Temporary Storage Connection
From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:
To configure a new Temporary Storage connection, use the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors, and then click the Temporary Storage connector block:
To configure an existing Temporary Storage connection, use the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints, and then double-click the Temporary Storage connection block:
These open the configuration screen for the Temporary Storage connection, covered next.
Configuring a Temporary Storage Connection
Configuration of a Temporary Storage connection includes these fields:
Endpoint Name: Enter a name to use to identify the Temporary Storage connection. The name must be unique for each Temporary Storage connection and must not contain forward slashes (
/) or colons (
:). This name is also used to identify the Temporary Storage endpoint, which refers to both a specific connection and its activities.
- Test: Click to verify the connection with the agent. The temporary storage path and files can be specified later during activity configuration.
- Save Changes: Click to save and close the connection configuration.
- Discard Changes: After making changes to a new or existing configuration, click to close the configuration without saving. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.
- Delete: After opening an existing connection configuration, click to permanently delete the connection from the project and close the configuration (see Component Dependencies, Deletion, and Removal). A message asks you to confirm that you want to delete the connection.
After a Temporary Storage connection has been created, menu actions for that connection are accessible from the project pane's Components tab. See Connection Actions Menu for details.
After configuring a Temporary Storage connection, you can configure one or more Temporary Storage activities associated with that connection to be used either as a source (to provide data within an operation) or as a target (to consume data within an operation), or to be used in a script.
Use the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints, and then click the Temporary Storage connection block to display activities that are available to be used with a Temporary Storage connection:
