Source Source for the data. This can be table(s), query, view(s) or proc. If its other than table or view then you must specify --proc or --query parameter to indicate access mode. You may list multiple objects by separating them using vertical bar (e.g table1|table2|view1). You can also use pattern for objects (e.g. cust%|prod%)
Schema Schema name or pattern to search for objects when object name contains pattern (e.g. Cust%)
ExcludeViews If pattern used on object name then do not include matching views in the objects to export.
ExcludeTables If pattern used on object name then do not include matching views in the objects to export.
UseMappingFile Use custom layout and additional processing instructions per column
MappingAccessMode AccessMode for Mapping file. This determines how mapping information will be read at runtime
MappingDirectValue Mapping information in the format of XML
MappingVariable Variable which holds mapping information
MappingFilePathVariable Variable which holds mapping file path
MappingFilePath Mapping file path which contains custom layout and additional information
Target Target file or folder path
Append Append data at the end of file
Overwrite Overwrite target file if exists
GroupByColumn Split files by group by column value. e.g. if you group by Country field then you will have one file for each country. Country name will be used as file name suffix. If you specify --split option then you may have more than one file for each value in group by field depending on split size/rows you specify
Compress Compress file in gzip format
KeepRaw Keep source file after compressing it when --gzip option enabled. By default source file is deleted once its compressed.
SplitFiles Split into multiple files (when split enabled you can split by filesize or rowcount. Check --splitsize and --splitrows options).
MaxSizePerFile Maximum size per file. You can specify in bytes, kb, mb or gb. Example: 10mb, 5000kb, 1gb, 2000bytes
MaxRowsPerFile Maximum rows per file
