Blackhole Target#

A blackhole target simply materializes all records of a mapping, but immediately discards them. This can be useful for some test scenarios but probably is not worth much in a real production environment.


    kind: blackhole
    mapping: some_mapping


  • kind (mandatory) (type: string): blackhole

  • description (optional) (type: string): Optional descriptive text of the build target

  • mapping (mandatory) (type: string): Specifies the name of the mapping output to be materialized

Supported Execution Phases#

  • BUILD - In the build phase, all records of the specified mapping will be materialized
