Tabli - Data Move Command

Undraw Windows


data move is a tabli command that supports the move data operation.

This is an alias command of the data transfer command where the transfer-operation option has been set to move.


Change the file extension

The below command will:

tabli data  move *.txt@cd '$'


A move operation is logically a copy operation followed by a drop of the source.

Therefore this operations should follow the prerequisites of the copy operation


tabli data move -h
Tabli data move

Move one or more data resources.

A `move` operation will perform:
  * a `rename` if the target connection and the source connection are the same
  * a `copy` and `drop` of the source if the target connection and the source connection are not the same

Note: This is just a alias command to the `transfer` command with the transfer operation option set to `move` .


 1 - To move the table `time` from the data store `sqlite` into the file `time.csv`, you would execute

        tabli data move time@sqlite time.csv

 2 - To move the file `foo.txt` to the `dir` directory  `dir/foo.txt`, you would execute

        tabli data move foo.txt dir/foo.txt


    tabli data move [options|flags] <source-selector> <target-data-uri>



    <source-selector>                                       A data selector that select the data resources to transfer

    <target-data-uri>                                       A target data URI that defines the destination (Example: [table]@connection). If the target data uri has no name, the name will be the name of the source.

  Cross Data Transfer Options:

    -bs,--buffer-size <bufferSize>                          defines the size of the memory buffer between the source and target threads

    -mdu,--metrics-data-uri <metricsDataUri>                defines a target data uri where the data metrics should be exported

    -sfs,--source-fetch-size <fetchSize>                    defines the fetch size against the source connection

    -tbs,--target-batch-size <batchSize>                    defines the batch size against the target data resource

    -tcf,--target-commit-frequency <commitFrequency>        defines the commit frequency in number of batches against the target data resource

    -tw,--target-worker <targetWorkerCount>                 defines the target number of thread against the target connection

    -wbv,--with-bind-variables                              defines if bind variables are used in the SQL statement

  Data Definition Options:

    -sa,--source-attribute <attributeName=value>            Set a source data resource attribute

    -ta,--target-attribute <attributeName=value>            Set a target data resource attribute

  Transfer Operation Options:

    -so,--source-operation <value>                          defines the data operation (drop or truncate) on the source after transfer. Note: A `move` operation will drop the source.

    -to,--target-operation <targetDataOperation>            defines the data operations (replace, truncate) on the existing target before transfer.

  Selection Options:

    -wd,--with-dependencies                                 If set, the dependencies will be also selected

  Global Options:

    -cf,--conf <path>                                       The path to a configuration file

    -cv,--connection-vault <path>                           The path where the connection vault is located

    -h,--help                                               Print this help

    -l,--log-level <error|warning|tip|info|fine>            Set the log level

    -ns,--not-strict                                        A minor error will not stop the process.

    -odu,--output-data-uri <outputDataUri>                  defines the output data uri for the feedback data (default: console)

    -oo,--output-operation <dataOperation>                  defines the data operations (replace, truncate) on an existing output resource before transfer.

    -oop,--output-transfer-operation <transferOperation>    defines the output transfer operation (insert, update, merge, copy). Default to `copy` for a file system and `insert` for a database.

    -pp,--passphrase <passphrase>                           A passphrase (master password) to decrypt the encrypted values
