Data export format
Data is extracted into compressed XML files. The compressed file is named by including the profile name, whether it is full or partial extract and the sequence number.
The sequence number is a number that is assigned to each profile export, sequentially increasing for each export.
For example, if the profile name is “Catalog”, its first full export compressed file is named as “FullCatalog_1.0.zip”.
Sequence numbers for delta compressed files are based on the sequence number of the most recent full export for a profile.
For example, if the profile name is “Catalog”, its first full export compressed file is named “FullCatalog_1.0.zip”. Delta compressed files that are created after this file but before the next is named as “DeltaCatalog_1.1.zip”, “DeltaCatalog_1.2.zip” and so on.
When FullCatalog_2.0.zip is created, subsequent delta compressed files are named as DeltaCatalog_2.1.zip, DeltaCatalog_2.2.zip, and so on.
If a profile does not fit into the size constraints that are configured by the system, multiple compressed files can be created for an export. For example, if the first FullCatalog requires two compressed files to be created, they are named as FullCatalog_1.0_1.zip and FullCatalog_1.0_2.zip.
Subsequent deltas for this file are based on the primary sequence number, which is 1 in this case.
If a delta export requires two compressed files, the files are named as DeltaCatalog_1.1_1.zip and DeltaCatalog_1.1_2.zip.
