Introduction

A Temporary Storage connection is configured using the Temporary Storage connector, establishing access to temporary storage on the agent machine. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more Temporary Storage activities associated with that connection to be used either as a source to provide data to an operation or script, or as a target to consume data in an operation or script.

Note
CAUTION: If using an Agent Group with multiple agents, see the Important Notes in Temporary Storage about using temporary storage.

Creating or Editing a Temporary Storage Connection

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

To configure a new Temporary Storage connection, use the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors, and then click the Temporary Storage connector block:

To configure an existing Temporary Storage connection, use the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints, and then double-click the Temporary Storage connection block:

These open the configuration screen for the Temporary Storage connection, covered next.

Configuring a Temporary Storage Connection

Configuration of a Temporary Storage connection includes these fields:

  • Endpoint Name: Enter a name to use to identify the Temporary Storage connection. The name must be unique for each Temporary Storage connection and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:). This name is also used to identify the Temporary Storage endpoint, which refers to both a specific connection and its activities.

  • Test: Click to verify the connection with the agent. The temporary storage path and files can be specified later during activity configuration.
  • Save Changes: Click to save and close the connection configuration.
  • Discard Changes: After making changes to a new or existing configuration, click to close the configuration without saving. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.
  • Delete: After opening an existing connection configuration, click to permanently delete the connection from the project and close the configuration (see Component Dependencies, Deletion, and Removal). A message asks you to confirm that you want to delete the connection.

Next Steps

After configuring a Temporary Storage connection, you can configure one or more Temporary Storage activities associated with that connection to be used either as a source (to provide data within an operation) or as a target (to consume data within an operation), or to be used in a script.

Use the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints, and then click the Temporary Storage connection block to display activities that are available to be used with a Temporary Storage connection:

For more information, see these activities:

  • Read: Reads data from a Temporary Storage endpoint and is intended to be used as a source in an operation or called in a script.
  • Write: Writes data to a Temporary Storage endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation or called in a script.
