azure_table_storage

BETA: This component is mostly stable but breaking changes could still be made outside of major version releases if a fundamental problem with the component is found.

Stores message parts in an Azure Table Storage table.

Introduced in version 3.36.0.

# Common config fields, showing default values
output:
azure_table_storage:
storage_account: ""
storage_access_key: ""
storage_connection_string: ""
table_name: ""
partition_key: ""
row_key: ""
properties: {}
max_in_flight: 1
batching:
count: 0
byte_size: 0
period: ""
check: ""

Only one authentication method is required, storage_connection_string or storage_account and storage_access_key. If both are set then the storage_connection_string is given priority.

In order to set the table_name, partition_key and row_key you can use function interpolations described here, which are calculated per message of a batch.

If the properties are not set in the config, all the json fields are marshaled and stored in the table, which will be created if it does not exist.

The object and array fields are marshaled as strings. e.g.:

The JSON message:

{
"foo": 55,
"bar": {
"baz": "a",
"bez": "b"
},
"diz": ["a", "b"]
}

Will store in the table the following properties:

foo: '55'
bar: '{ "baz": "a", "bez": "b" }'
diz: '["a", "b"]'

It's also possible to use function interpolations to get or transform the properties values, e.g.:

properties:
device: '${! json("device") }'
timestamp: '${! json("timestamp") }'

Performance#

This output benefits from sending multiple messages in flight in parallel for improved performance. You can tune the max number of in flight messages with the field max_in_flight.

This output benefits from sending messages as a batch for improved performance. Batches can be formed at both the input and output level. You can find out more in this doc.

Fields#

storage_account#

The storage account to upload messages to. This field is ignored if storage_connection_string is set.

Type: string
Default: ""

storage_access_key#

The storage account access key. This field is ignored if storage_connection_string is set.

Type: string
Default: ""

storage_connection_string#

A storage account connection string. This field is required if storage_account and storage_access_key are not set.

Type: string
Default: ""

table_name#

The table to store messages into. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples
table_name: ${!meta("kafka_topic")}

partition_key#

The partition key. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples
partition_key: ${!json("date")}

row_key#

The row key. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples
row_key: ${!json("device")}-${!uuid_v4()}

properties#

A map of properties to store into the table. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: object
Default: {}

insert_type#

Type of insert operation This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string
Default: "INSERT"
Options: INSERT, INSERT_MERGE, INSERT_REPLACE.

max_in_flight#

The maximum number of messages to have in flight at a given time. Increase this to improve throughput.

Type: number
Default: 1

timeout#

The maximum period to wait on an upload before abandoning it and reattempting.

Type: string
Default: "5s"

batching#

Allows you to configure a batching policy.

Type: object

# Examples
batching:
byte_size: 5000
count: 0
period: 1s
batching:
count: 10
period: 1s
batching:
check: this.contains("END BATCH")
count: 0
period: 1m

batching.count#

A number of messages at which the batch should be flushed. If 0 disables count based batching.

Type: number
Default: 0

batching.byte_size#

An amount of bytes at which the batch should be flushed. If 0 disables size based batching.

Type: number
Default: 0

batching.period#

A period in which an incomplete batch should be flushed regardless of its size.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples
period: 1s
period: 1m
period: 500ms

batching.check#

A Bloblang query that should return a boolean value indicating whether a message should end a batch.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples
check: this.type == "end_of_transaction"

batching.processors#

A list of processors to apply to a batch as it is flushed. This allows you to aggregate and archive the batch however you see fit. Please note that all resulting messages are flushed as a single batch, therefore splitting the batch into smaller batches using these processors is a no-op.

Type: array
Default: []

# Examples
processors:
- archive:
format: lines
processors:
- archive:
format: json_array
processors:
- merge_json: {}
