Files are the file upload object allowing users to directly upload files into the cloud storage that the Syntasa platform is installed. This is useful to load small files for experimentation and testing, especially for users without direct access to the cloud storage.
One or more files of the same file type and format can be uploaded to a single Syntasa file object. The files can be accessed via notebooks or code processes. In the future, currently on the product roadmap, users will be able to drag a file object into an app.
Various file types are supported, including a generic option "Other", but specifying the type and format, when applicable, enables the file object to be utilized in the future for features that expect a certain file type. For example, a certain process type within an app may expect JSON; the app canvas will only file upload objects of that type to be connected to the process.
The following file types and formats are available:
- Data - Data files can be of the following file formats: Delimited, JSON, Parquet, Avro, Other
- Python Whl
- Syntasa Object
