Incremental Load Tools
This document is part of a series on Shared Jobs.
Incremental Loading is the practice of loading only records that are new or changed since the previous load. For large tables, this can represent a significant saving of resources over reloading the entire table every time to ensure it is up to date.
Users should schedule their incremental load jobs to run periodically for the job to continually update the created tables. To learn more about scheduling, read Manage Schedules.
The Incremental Load tools in Matillion ETL allow users to easily set up incremental loads for various Data Stagers, with wizards to guide users through the configuration process. These tools can be found in the Tools folder in the Components panel on Matillion ETL.
When an incremental load is dragged onto the jobtextio. canvas, a short wizard opens automatically to help configure the Incremental Load Shared Job(read-only).
Each wizard contains several pages of options&mdashincluding data sources, columns, authentication properties, and staging options that are similar to those found in data staging components. Once configuration is completed, the Incremental Load Shared Job will appear on the canvas, ready for use.
The read-only Shared Job that each wizard uses is also available, unconfigured, from the Shared Jobs panel.
