Limitations and Known Issues


Snap Views

View Description Examples of Upstream and Downstream Snaps
Input The Export ID, the associated model, and the Workspace from which the file should be read.
Output This Snap has exactly one binary output view.

Error handling is a generic way to handle errors without losing data or failing the Snap execution. You can handle the errors that the Snap might encounter when running the pipeline by choosing one of the following options from the When errors occur list under the Views tab. The available options are:

  • Stop Pipeline Execution Stops the current pipeline execution when the Snap encounters an error.
  • Discard Error Data and Continue Ignores the error, discards that record, and continues with the remaining records.
  • Route Error Data to Error View Routes the error data to an error view without stopping the Snap execution.

Snap Settings

  • Suggestion icon (): Indicates a list that is dynamically populated based on the configuration.
  • Expression icon (): Indicates whether the value is an expression (if enabled) or a static value (if disabled). Learn more about Using Expressions in SnapLogic.
  • Add icon (): Indicates that you can add fields in the field set.
  • Remove icon (): Indicates that you can remove fields from the field set.
Field / Field set Type Description
Label String Required. Specify a unique name for the Snap. Modify this to be more appropriate, especially if there are more than one of the same Snap in the pipeline.
Workspace String/Expression/Suggestion Required. Specify the workspace that contains the target model.
Note: Workspace ID and Workspace Name can be used interchangeably.

Default value: N/A

Example: slogic

Model String/Expression/Suggestion Required. Specify the model on which you want the Snap to operate.
Note: Model ID and Model Name can be used interchangeably.

Default value: N/A

Example: snap test

Export ID String/Expression/Suggestion

Required. Specify the export ID available in a model.

Default value: N/A

Example: Sample.csv File

Retry limit Integer/Expression

Required. Specify the maximum number of connection retry attempts to make in case of a connection failure. If the retry attempts exceed the configured value, the pipeline execution fails and an error message appears.

Default value: 3

Example: 8

Retry interval (seconds) Integer/Expression

Required. Specify the minimum retry time interval in seconds. Enter the time interval for the Snap to retry a connection request after a failed connection. The time increases exponentially between failures. For example, if the timeout is set to 3 seconds, the first timeout is at 3, the second is at 4.5 etc.

Default value: 3

Example: 6

HTTP timeout (seconds) Integer/Expression

Required. Specify the connection timeout value in seconds. In case of a connection failure, the Snap aborts the pipeline execution. For example, if the HTTP timeout is set to 30 seconds, and the Snap fails to establish a connection until 30 seconds, the pipeline logs a timeout exception and aborts execution.

Default value: 60

Example: 30

Snap execution Dropdown list
Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:
  • Validate & Execute. Performs limited execution of the Snap and generates a data preview during pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only. Performs full execution of the Snap during pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled. Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.

Default value: Validate & Execute

Example: Execute only
