Enabling this behavior allows DataHub to compress any file that is not supported on the destination into a .zip format before being transferred. This will be done instead of flagging the item for manual remediation and halting the transfer of the file.
For example, if you attempt to transfer the file "db123.cmd" from a Network File Share to Sharepoint, DataHub will compress the file to "db123.zip" before transferring it over, and thus avoiding an error message.
Job JSON Example
Zip Unsupported / Restricted Content options include:
- convert (default) | Zip restricted content so that it can be transferred successfully
- fail | Log an error if restricted content is encountered
- warn | Log a warning if restricted content is encountered
- skip | Ignore if restricted content is encountered
In the DataHub "Create Job" UI, Zip Unsupported File Types on the behavior options is equivalent to "restricted_content": "convert" configured in your job JSON
