This extractor loads single or multiple tables from a Keboola Connection project and stores them in a bucket in your current project. The component can be used in situations where Data Catalog cannot, e.g., when moving data between two different organizations or regions.
The extractor requires an API Token with read-only access to a single bucket. This limits the potential risks of token misuse.
To create such a token, go to Users & Settings in the source project and create a new token. Use a name that will help you identify the token later, and set the read access to the desired bucket.
After creating the token, copy it somewhere safe as you won’t be able to see it again. If you lose the token, you can refresh it – the current token will be deactivated and a new token will be issued.
If you want to extract from multiple buckets, you’ll have to create multiple tokens and multiple configurations.
Create a new configuration of the Keboola Connection Storage extractor. Select the region of the source project, and paste the token you generated in the source project.
To copy a table from the source project to the current project, click Add Table. Then assign the table a name that will be used in your project. If the table name is not the same in the source and in the destination project, you can change the source table name on the next page.
Configured tables are stored as configuration rows. Each table has different settings but they are all extracted from the same project and bucket.
