A manifest file is created when you write objects to external object store. The manifest file lists the paths of the objects stored on external object store.

  • The files that are specified in the manifest can be in different buckets, but all the buckets must be in the same region.
  • Manifest files are in JSON format.
  • The storage location for manifest files must start with the following:
    • Amazon S3 location must begin with /S3 or /s3, for example /S3/
    • Google Cloud Storage location must begin with /GS or /gs, for example /gs/
    • Azure Blob location (including Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 in Blob Interop Mode) must begin with /AZ or /az, for example /az/
  • Manifest files are not cumulative. If you want to add entries to a manifest, you must create a new manifest that includes the original entries plus the ones you want to add.
  • An error is reported if you attempt to write another manifest file in the same location. Use OVERWRITE('TRUE') with MANIFESTONLY('TRUE') keywords to replace a manifest in the same location.
