Read Google Storage (Cloud Connectivity)


This operator downloads the specified file from the Google Cloud Storage.


After you have configured your Google Storage account, you can load the Google Storage file with this operator.

Be aware that the operator cannot read the file as example set. For this reason, you must connect the Read Google Storage operator to another appropriate operator to read the file. For example, if you want to load an Excel file from your Google Storage, you must connect the Read Google Storage operator with the Read Excel operator to see the result.
