Parquet Parser

In this article


You can use this Snap to read the binary (Parquet) data from the input and write the document data to the output.


Snap Type

The Parquet Parser Snap is a Parse-type Snap.

  • Min: 1

  • Max: 1

  • Parquet Reader

Requires binary (Parquet) input to convert it into the document.




  • Min: 1

  • Max: 2

  • Mapper

  • Copy

Writes the document data as output.

The second output view provides the schema model of the parquet file.


Error handling is a generic way to handle errors without losing data or failing the Snap execution. You can handle the errors that the Snap might encounter when running the pipeline by choosing one of the following options from the When errors occur list under the Views tab:

  • Stop Pipeline Execution: Stops the current pipeline execution if the Snap encounters an error.

  • Discard Error Data and Continue: Ignores the error, discards that record, and continues with the remaining records.

  • Route Error Data to Error View: Routes the error data to an error view without stopping the Snap execution.

Snap Settings

  • Asterisk ( * ): Indicates a mandatory field.

  • Suggestion icon (): Indicates a list that is dynamically populated based on the configuration.

  • Expression icon ( ): Indicates the value is an expression (if enabled) or a static value (if disabled). Learn more about Using Expressions in SnapLogic.

  • Add icon ( ): Indicates that you can add fields in the field set.

  • Remove icon ( ): Indicates that you can remove fields from the field set.

  • Upload icon ( ): Indicates that you can upload files.

Default ValueParquet Parser
ExampleTransform Parquet Parser


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.


Ignore empty data


Default ValueSelected


When you select this checkbox, the Snap does not generate any output. If you deselect this checkbox, the Snap generates an empty output document when you pass either an empty input stream or an input stream with CSV headers.

Snap execution

Default ValueValidate & Execute
Example: Execute only

Dropdown list

Select one of the following three modes in which the Snap executes:

  • 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.
