Vertica - Insert


Snap type:

Write


Description:

This Snap executes a SQL INSERT statement to insert records into the selected table of a Vertica database. The Snap uses the document's keys as columns and document's values as values to insert records.
 

Prerequisites:

N/A

Support and limitations:

Works in Ultra Task Pipelines if batching is disabled.

Account: 

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See Configuring Vertica Accounts for information on setting up this type of account.

Views:
InputThis Snap has exactly one input view.
OutputThis Snap has at most one output view.
Error

This Snap has at most one error view and produces zero or more documents in the view.

Database Write Snaps output all records of a batch (as configured in your account settings) to the error view if the write fails during batch processing.


Settings

Label*


Specify the name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.

Schema name*


Specify the database schema name. Selecting a schema filters the Table name list to show only those tables within the selected schema. The property is suggestible and retrieves available database schemas during suggest values.

The values can be passed using the pipeline parameters but not the upstream parameter.

Example: public

Table name*


Specify the table on which to execute the insert operation.

The values can be passed using the pipeline parameters but not the upstream parameter.

ExampleEmp

Create table if not present


Select this check box to automatically create the target table if it does not exist.

This Snap creates a table based on the data types of the columns generated from the first row of the input document.

Default value: Not selected
Example: N/A

Preserve case sensitivity
Select this check box to specify whether the letter case used in column labels must be preserved while performing the insert operation. Selecting this option ensures that the precise cases used are retained.

Default value
: Not Selected
Number of retries

Specify the maximum number of times that the process must be retried before displaying an error.

Default value0
Example2

Retry interval (seconds)

The maximum resting time in seconds between subsequent retries.

Default value: 1
Example: 2

Snap Execution

Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.


In a scenario where the Auto commit on the account is set to true, and the downstream Snap does depends on the data processed on an Upstream Database Bulk Load Snap, use the Script Snap to add delay for the data to be available.

For example, when performing a create, insert and a delete function sequentially on a pipeline, using a Script Snap helps in creating a delay between the insert and delete function or otherwise it may turn out that the delete function is triggered even before inserting the records on the table.
