Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
Root directory Enter the directory containing metadata files DIRECTORY     Mandatory
Subdirectory filter Filter of subdirectories expressed using the Java regular expression pattern syntax (e.g. '.*_xyz' - import subdirectories that end with _xyz).
You can define multiple conditions separated with spaces (e.g. 'x y' - import sub directories that called x or y). When a condition has spaces it must be quoted (e.g. 'x y' - import sub directories that called 'x y'). You can define an exclusion condition by putting the dash character in front of it (e.g. '-test' - skip all 'test' directories).
The Java regular expression documentation is available at: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html
STRING      
File filter Similar to the directory filter parameter STRING      
Partition directories filter Files-based partition directories to skip.
This option is used to import a directory and all files inside this directory as a partition DataSet object.
STRING      
Miscellaneous Specify miscellaneous options identified with a -letter and value.

For example, -m 4G -f 100 -j -Dname=value -Xms1G

-m the maximum Java memory size whole number (e.g. -m 4G or -m 2500M ).
-s import system objects that are skipped by default (e.g. -s)
-v set environment variable(s) (e.g. -v var1=value -v var2="value with spaces").
-j the last option that is followed by Java command line options (e.g. -j -Dname=value -Xms1G).
-flat use this option to disable flattening postprocessor
STRING      
Incremental import Specifies whether to import only the changes made in the source or to re-import everything (as specified in other parameters).

True - import only the changes made in the source.
False - import everything (as specified in other parameters).

An internal cache is maintained for each metadata source, which contains previously imported models. If this is the first import or if the internal cache has been deleted or corrupted, the bridge will behave as if this parameter is set to 'False'.
BOOLEAN
False
True
True
