Exporting data to your DSPs and storage buckets for targeting and manipulation.
Destinations are used when exporting audience data from a DCN. The type of data exported from an audience to a destination consists of type-prefixed identifiers and identity clusters. There are different types of destinations, such as Google Cloud Storage (GCS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Azure Blob Storage.
You can create a new destination from your DCN UI or using the CLI by running
optable-cli destination createwith the type of destination, the bucket location, and access credentials. You can create as many destinations as you like.
Storage buckets are destinations to which you can export your audiences as either CSVs, TSVs, JSON or Parquet objects. Examples of storage buckets are Google Cloud Storage (GCS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Azure Blob Storage. Exporting to these destinations enables you to use the output files in your preferred data visualization, modelling and reporting tools.
You can view a history of all exports to a specific destination as well as errors related to those exports by navigating to your destination in Integrations > Destinations and clicking on the "History" tab.
From the UI
From the CLI
Destinations can be archived via the UI by navigating to the specific destination you wish to archive in Integrations > Destinations and clicking "Archive".
Note that data (exported results) will not be deleted from the destination when archiving said destination.
You can list all destinations with the CLI by running
optable-cli destination listcommand. The command returns a list of destinations encoded in JSON. You can use the excellent jq utility to parse and manipulate JSON from the command line. For example, to list just the names and type of all destinations:
$ optable-cli destination list | jq '[.name,.kind]'
