titleUsing the pass-through functionality

In certain scenarios, the Snap may be unable to process the entire input due to limitations imposed by the endpoint's API. In such cases, we recommend that you select the Pass through checkbox to ensure that the unprocessed input is not lost. You can process the remaining input data using more of the same Snap in the Pipeline. Alternatively, you can also write the original data into a separate file using a combination of the Mapper Snap and the File Writer Snap.
