An output is defined as a set of files or tables, formats, and locations where results are written after a job run on the recipe has completed. To run a job from a flow, you must create an output object that defines where results are delivered after a job is successfully executed.

Every flow requires an output in order to publish results. An output object is composed of one or more publishing actions. A publishing action defines the output type, format, location, and other settings where results from a recipe are delivered. 

You can create publishing actions in multiple formats and publish those to different databases and file storage formats. The following are the output types:

  • File-based outputs such as CSV.
