    • Complete: Full folder is downloaded and ingested in every ingestion job run

    • Incremental: Ingest only the new files in every ingestion job run. Use this option if your folder is very large, and you are getting new files continuously

      • Remove Duplicate Rows:

        • Unique Key: Unique key from table, to dedup data across multiple ingestions

        • Time Column Name: Will be used to order data for deduping

      • Max Job Runtime: Give maximum time in minutes for which data should be downloaded. Ingestion job will run specified max minutes and checkpoint will be updated. Next run will continue from checkpoint.
