A temporary storage connection is configured using the temporary storage connector to establish 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 use as a source or target within an operation or script.

CAUTION: If using an Agent Group with multiple agents, see the Important Notes in Temporary Storage about using temporary storage.

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, within the Connectors filter, click the temporary storage connector block:

To configure an existing temporary storage connection, within the Endpoints filter, double-click the temporary storage connection block:

This will open a 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 (:). As a specific connection and its activities are referred to as an endpoint, this name is also used to identify the temporary storage endpoint.

  • Test: Click this button to verify the connection with the agent. The temporary storage path and files can be specified later during activity configuration.
  • Save Changes: Click this button to save and close the connection configuration.
  • Discard Changes: After making changes to a new or existing configuration, click Discard Changes to close the configuration without saving. A message will ask you to confirm that you want to discard changes.
  • Delete: After opening an existing connection configuration, click Delete to permanently delete the connection from the project and close the configuration (see Component Dependencies, Deletion, and Removal).

Next Steps

After configuring a temporary storage connection, you can configure one or more temporary storage read or write activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation or script. For more information, see these activities:

  • Read: Reads data from a local storage connection and is used as a source in an operation or a script.
  • Write: Writes data to a local storage connection and is used as a target in an operation or a script.
