How to schedule data export?

Scheduling data export

You can schedule data export using different export configurations in DataPrep.

To schedule data export

  1. Click Export from the top bar in the Studio page and select Schedule export

2. Click the New schedule button to create a new schedule for export. 

You can also pause or resume, edit, share, and delete existing schedules from here.

 3. Select a Repeat method (Every 'N' hours, Every day, Weekly once, Monthly once). Choose a time to repeat (i.e. set a frequency) using the Perform every option and your Time zone .

4. Choose where to export your data. You can schedule export to various destinations such as, cloud storage services, cloud databases, or to business applications such as Zoho Analytics. As an example, we'll be choosing  Cloud storage .

5. If your data contains columns with personal data, you can choose to include or exclude them in the PII columns section. 

You can also apply the necessary security methods to protect your personal data column:

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.

6. You can also select the check box under Export handling and notifications  to stop export if the data quality drops below 100%.

7. Choose a storage service where you would like to export you data. For example, let's choose Google Drive  on which the destination was selected for export.

8. Select the file name and format in which the data needs to be exported. You can also compress the data as a zip file and encrypt the file with a password.

9. 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

10. After configuring where to export, click Save.

Note: You can also export your files to your shared folders in Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, Zoho WorkDrive.
