About a local data folder

A local data folder is a folder that you create or a folder that you upload to the Data Manager. A local data folder helps you organize local data files and other local data folders that are children to the parent local data folder.

Using the Data Manager, you can upload one or more data files and folders to Shared Storage for a given tenant in an Incorta cluster. An uploaded file is a local data file and an uploaded folder is a local data folder.

A folder can contain zero or more files with zero or more subfolders. Incorta preserves the hierarchy of folders.

The LocalFiles data source exposes the local data files and local data folders for a physical schema table that uses the File System connector as the data source. The File System connector supports selecting a local data file or a group of files from a local data folder.

Supported file formats

The Data Manager allows you upload one or more data folders. Incorta only uploads files with the following supported file extensions. After upload, Incorta will unzip compressed folders and files.
