Top Level Folder

Input the Top Level Folder in the bucket. The top-level folder in the bucket depends on the storage owner and provider. In general, the top-level folder is the 'data-locker-hourly' folder. In case of more than one App, more than one folders will be listed and the required folder can be chosen from the dropdown.


Select the topic of the report from the dropdown. Topic relates to the subject matter of the report and is app-specific. Report types, their availability and data freshness all vary for each Report Topic.

Segregation Type

For bucket cloud storage, data is provided in unified data files containing the data of all apps selected or segregated into folders by app.

Setting Parameters

Parameter Description Values

Fetch Mode


Specifies the manner in which data will be fetched from the Appsflyer Datalocker API : FULL will fetch the entire data in each run. INCREMENTAL will only fetch the new records after the latest update. It is recommended that the pipeline be executed in incremental mode as data lockers typically contain a large amount of data.

{Full, Incremental}

Default Value: INCREMENTAL

Start Date


In case Incremental Fetch mode is chosen, indicate the date from which you wish to begin processing the data files. You can only configure this parameter once while setting up a new pipeline. This parameter cannot be changed once the pipeline is configured.

Specify the Start Date

Insert Mode


This refers to the manner in which data will get updated in the data warehouse, with 'Upsert' selected, the data will be upserted (only new records or records with changes. Data will be upserted on the field '_datachannel_timestamp'). With 'Append' selected, all data fetched will be inserted. Selecting 'Replace' will ensure the table is dropped and recreated with fresh data on each run. It is recommended to use 'Upsert' option unless there is a specific requirement.

{Upsert, Append, Replace}

Default Value: UPSERT

Normal Scheduling

Use the dropdown to select an interval-based hourly, monthly, weekly, or daily frequency.

Advance Scheduling

Set schedules fine-grained at the level of Months, Days, Hours, and Minutes.

Dataset & Name

Dataset Name

Key in the Dataset Name(also serves as the table name in your data warehouse).Keep in mind, that the name should be unique across the account and the data source. Special characters (except underscore _) and blank spaces are not allowed. It is best to follow a consistent naming scheme for future search to locate the tables.

Dataset Description

Enter a short description (optional) describing the dataset being fetched by this particular pipeline.


Choose the events for which you’d like to be notified: whether "ERROR ONLY" or "ERROR AND SUCCESS".

Once you have finished click on Finish to save it. Read more about naming and saving your pipelines including the option to save them as templates here
