How to rename file name in bulk while copying it from gen1 data lake to gen2 data lake.

Kavita 5 Reputation points

Requirement : Copy all the files starting with name "DATA_<timestamp>.parquet " available in gen1 path to gen2 path , while copying the files we have to rename the files . Replace "DATA<timestamp>.parquet" with "GEN2-DATA-FILE__<timestamp>.parquet" . Timestamp should be the old one only.

Steps I followed :

  1. fetch all metadata available in gen1 path
  2. Filter with filename using @statswith() function
  3. applied for each and used copy activity
  4. configured source and sink in copy activity
  5. facing issue in sink I tried using replace() function for filename but its not giving any result. For each activity getting executed but I am not getting any output

filename expression I used : @replace(,'DATA','GEN2-DATA-FILE')

Please let me know what expression I should use to achieve the result
