Delimited Text Driver , output CSV


Hello,

I am new to Delimited Text Driver

For publisher implementation it's ok, I have done so many

But for the subscriber, I am intending to perfom an extract of some
User data daily on a 'sync' operation

My question is how to implement writing to the file in "creation" &
"placement" part of the subscriber as we have no DN ??? if you can give
me some DirXML examples

I want to do a daily extract and suffix the file by the timestamp
(example: output-23-12-2011.csv, output-24-12-2011.csv, ... ) how to
acheive that ?

Thanks in advance

The way the driver works is to write all the data it has during some
window, into a file named for the CTIME timestamp (of the writing time I
assume, so probably calculated as it begins to write the file).

Splitting by day is not out of the box.

You ought not need to care about dest-dn, (Placement) and create is
needed only if you wish to filter the users out.

To generate the event for the users on a daily basis, add a JOb that
fires on the right container, (and submits a trigger event for each
child object) and then in your Sub-Event react to the <trigger> event
(operation=trigger) to do what you need to do, knowing you will get one
trigger doc per object.

You might want to read my Cool Solutions article on this:

You can write anything you want to the output file, see the final XSLT in
the Output transform.

See the documentation. You need a file post processor to do this.
