Create Links and Jobs

Use connectors to create links to data sources and then create jobs to execute the data transfer.

  1. Create a link to each data source using the connector name.
    sqoop:000>  create link --connector <connector-name>
    For example, to create a link with the kite-connector:
    sqoop:000>  create link --connector kite-connector
  2. Use link names to create a job.
    sqoop:000>  create job --from <link_name> --to <link_name>
For more information about using connectors, see the Sqoop2 connector documentation for Sqoop 1.99.6 and Sqoop 1.99.7.
Note: Prior to using an FTP or an SFTP connector, verify that the associated FTP or SFTP server is configured.
