Allows users to define the S3 directory structure for partitioned external table data. This works by attributing values to each partition on the table. On S3, a single folder is created for each partition value and is named according to the corresponding partition key and value.
For example, the partition value for the key 'Salesdate' might be '2016-01-07'. A directory would then be created on S3 named 'Salesdate=2017-04-31' containing this partition's data.
It is important to note that this component only adds physical partitions on S3—the table itself must already have partitions defined in the Create External Table component.
