1. Click the Export now option from the Export menu in the DataPrep Studio page.

3. If your data contains columns with personal data or ePHI data, you can choose to include or exclude them in the Columns section. You can also apply the required security methods to protect your data as follows.

A.  Data masking    
Data masking hides original data with 'x' to protect personal information.

B. Data Tokenization  
Data tokenization replaces each distinct value in your data with a random value. Hence the output is statistically identical to the original data. 

C. None
You can select none if you do not want to use any security method. You can choose whether to export these column using the corresponding check boxes.  

  1. Exporting datasets without securing personal data will be restricted if Secure data exports option is enabled in your organization's privacy settings. Click here to know more.
  2. Based on the Compliance settings of your organization, exporting datasets with ePHI data may be restricted or restricted without securing ePHI data with security measures or password protection.

4.  Select an account from the saved connections or connect a new account using the Add new option. Authenticate your Google account.

Authentication is required only the first time the service is used with DataPrep. 

In the case of Zoho WorkDrive, all folders available to export to will be directly fetched from your account using which you have logged into Zoho DataPrep. Here's a snapshot above.

5. You can choose to export the file in any of the supported file formats:
CSV, TSV, JSON, XLS, XLSX, and XML formats.

. You can also click the Advanced options link for the following options.
  • You can encode the file using character encoding methods like UTF-8 using the File encoding option.
  • Use the Compress file option to save your export as a .zip file.
  • You can use a Row Separator such as UNIX (Line Feed) or MAC (Carriage Return) to ensure the line endings are translated properly.
  • You can distinguish the point at which the content of a text field begins and ends using Text qualifiers such as Single Quote(') or Double Quote(") .
  • You can separate out the data or split using a Delimiter such as a Comma(,) , Semicolon(;) , or a Space .
  • You can also encrypt the file and protect it with a password.

7. Select the required option from the File export option drop down. You can choose to update the file with a new version at the destination, or add a new file during export. 

Note: The File export option is supported for OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, Zoho WorkDrive, and Amazon S3.

8. Navigate to the folder you want to place the file in and click Export .
