Learn more about OneDrive Import Integration.

You can send job results directly to your OneDrive account.

Continue to the following topics:


  • Basic knowledge of Treasure Data, including the TD Toolbelt

  • A OneDrive or SharePoint account

  • Authorized Treasure Data account access

Use the TD Console to Create Your Connection

Create a New Connection

When you configure a data connection, you provide authentication to access the integration. In Treasure Data, you configure the authentication and then specify the source information.

Go to Integrations Hub -> Catalog and search and select OneDrive.

The following dialog opens.

Access to Treasure Data OneDrive requires OAuth2 authentication. The authentication requires that users manually connect their Treasure Data account to their respective OneDrive account.

To authenticate, complete the following procedure:

Select on Click here to connect to a new account.

Log into your OneDrive account in the popup window and grant access to the Treasure Data app.

You will be redirected back to TD Console. Repeat the first step (Create a new connection) and choose your new OAuth connection.

Name your new OneDrive Connection. Select Done.

Configure Output Results to the Data Connection

In this step, you create or reuse a query. In the query, you configure the data connection.

Go to the TD Console query editor page.

Access the query that you plan to use to export data.

Compile the query, if you need to.

Specify the Result Export Target

Select Export Results.

Type the connection name in the search box to filter and select your OneDrive connection.

Edit all the information.

OneDrive Account Plan: there are two account plans:

  • Business: you must specify a domain, relative path, and folder path.

  • Personal: you must specify the folder path and whether it is a shared folder or not.

Domain Name: domain of the folder.

Relative Path: the relative path of the user's folder in OneDrive or SharePoint site.

Folder Path: directory of the folder in OneDrive or SharePoint. 

File Name: destination file name. Multibyte characters cannot be used.

This is a shared folder: select if the folder is shared with you by someone

Format: file extension.

Compression: indicate whether the result is to be compressed or not. Available Options: None, gz, and bzip2.

Header line: select if the exported data has the column name as the header line.

Null String: use this value to represent NULL values. Available options:

  • Default. select if an empty string ( '' ) is used to represent the Null value for file format CSV, and \N is used for the TSV format.

  • Empty string

  • \N NULL

  • null

End-of-line character: the character at the end of lines. Available options are CRLF, LF, and CR

Quote Policy: available options:

  • ALL. select if all values are enclosed by double quotes ("").

  • MINIMAL. select if any value that contains an embedded quote (") is presented with a consecutive pair of quotes (""). The MINIMAL quote policy is applied to CSV.

  • NONE. select if no escape for embedded quote is applied. By default, NONE is applied to TSV file format.

Max Retries: when an error occurs due to a OneDrive server error or network error, the number of retries attempted before aborting the upload.

Initial Retry Time Wait In Millies: when error occurs, initial waiting time for a retry, double the waiting time after each retry.

Max Retry Wait In Millies: The upper limit waiting time for a retry.

Execute the Query

Save the query with a name and run, or just run the query.

After the query has run successfully, the query result are automatically imported into the specified Container destination.

Example of a Query

SELECT email, first_name, last_name, region, age, gender, website FROM (
 VALUES ('kate1@gmail.com', 'Kate', 'Tiny', 'Asia', '41 and above', 'female', 'google.com'),
 ('ronan@gmail.com', 'R', 'P', 'Americas', '21-30', 'male', 'google.com'),
 ('michelle@gmail.com', 'M', 'C', 'EMEA', '31-40', 'male', 'facebook.com')
) tbl (email, first_name, last_name, region, age, gender, website);

Optionally Schedule the Query Export Jobs

You can use Scheduled Jobs with Result Export to periodically write the output result to a target destination that you specify.

1. Navigate to Data Workbench > Queries.
2. Create a new query or select an existing query.
3. Next to Schedule, select None.

4. In the drop-down, select one of the following schedule options:
