If a WRITE_NOS operation fails before it can create a manifest file you can use READ_NOS with RETURNTYPE('NOSREAD_KEYS') to read the keys of the existing objects in the external storage. This is used as input to create a new manifest file. The new manifest file created this way reflects all data objects currently in the external storage location, and can aid in determining which data objects resulted from an incomplete WRITE_NOS operation.
Create a manifest file using READ_NOS as input:
SELECT * FROM WRITE_NOS_FM ( ON (SELECT Location, ObjectLength FROM READ_NOS_FM1 (ON (SELECT CAST(NULL AS JSON CHARACTER SET UNICODE)) USING LOCATION('YOUR-STORAGE-ACCOUNT/20180701/') RETURNTYPE('NOSREAD_KEYS') ) as d1 ) USING MANIFESTFILE('YOUR-STORAGE-ACCOUNT/20180701/ManifestFile3/manifest3.json') MANIFESTONLY('TRUE') OVERWRITE('TRUE') ) AS d;
Replace the LOCATION of YOUR-STORAGE-ACCOUNT/20180701/ with the URI to the external object store location where you want to write the manifest file.
Replace the MANIFESTFILE location of YOUR-STORAGE-ACCOUNT/20180701/ManifestFile3/manifest3.json with the URI to the manifest file on external object store.
