What compression file types does export support?

The default file compression setting is.csv.gz.

What is the file-naming convention for exported data files?

By default, output export file names are built by the next template - part_<part-number>, where <part-number> indicates the number of the part of the generated output file. The numbering starts from zero.

For example, if entities/testName is the custom path parameter for the export files destination, then the output file is named as entities/testName/part_00001.csv.gz.

If five output files are generated, then they are named as
  • entities/testName/part_00000.zip
  • entities/testName/part_00001.zip
  • entities/testName/part_00002.zip
  • entities/testName/part_00003.zip
  • entities/testName/part_00004.zip
Note: Every output file name is unique.
