DESCRIPTION

To create an entry for a Google Cloud Storage fileset with a schema from a file, run:

gcloud alpha data-catalog entries create entry1  --location=us-central1 --entry-group=group1  --gcs-file-patterns="gs://bucket1/*" --display-name="sales data"  --schema-from-file=/tmp/schema.json
POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS
Entry resource - Entry to create. The arguments in this group can be used to specify the attributes of this resource. (NOTE) Some attributes are not given arguments in this group but can be set in other ways. To set the project attribute:

  • set the property core/project;
  • provide the argument --project on the command line. This must be specified.
ENTRY
ID of the entry or fully qualified identifier for the entry. To set the entry attribute:
  • provide the argument entry on the command line. This positional must be specified if any of the other arguments in this group are specified.
--entry-group=ENTRY_GROUP

  • provide the argument --entry-group on the command line.
--location=LOCATION

To set the location attribute:

  • provide the argument entry on the command line with a fully specified name;
  • provide the argument --location on the command line.
REQUIRED FLAGS
--gcs-file-patterns=[GCS_FILE_PATTERNS,…]
Patterns to identify a set of files in Google Cloud Storage. A star (*) may be used at the end of a pattern to match arbitrary files beginning with that pattern.

Examples of valid file patterns:

  • gs://bucket_name/* - Matches all files in 'bucket_name'.
  • gs://bucket_name/file* - Matches files prefixed by 'file' in 'bucket_name'.
  • gs://another_bucket/a.txt - Matches 'gs://another_bucket/a.txt'.
OPTIONAL FLAGS
--description=DESCRIPTION
Textual description of the entry.
--display-name=DISPLAY_NAME
Human-readable name for the entry.
Column schema for the entry. A schema consists of a list of column names along with their types, descriptions, modes, and nested subcolumns. For example:
- column: first_name
  description: First name
  mode: REQUIRED
  type: STRING
- column: last_name
  description: Last name
  mode: REQUIRED
  type: STRING
- column: addresses
  description: Addresses
  mode: REPEATED
  type: RECORD
  subcolumns:
  - column: city
    description: City
    mode: NULLABLE
    type: STRING
  - column: state
    description: State
    mode: NULLABLE
    type: STRING

At most one of these may be specified:
--schema=[COLUMN_NAME=COLUMN_TYPE,…]
Inline schema for the entry. When specifying a schema via this argument, only column names and types should be provided. Column modes will default to NULLABLE, and column descriptions and nested subcolumns are not supported.
--schema-from-file=SCHEMA_FROM_FILE
Path to a JSON or YAML file containing the schema for the entry. This can be used to specify schemas with column descriptions, column modes other than NULLABLE, and nested subcolumns.
