Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope

Storage access key A String that represents the Base-64-encoded 512-bit storage account access key, which are used for authentication when the storage is accessed. PASSWORD      
Root directory Set directory containing metadata files or specify it using browsing tool. Bridge provides up to 3 level browsing depth. Don't forget to specify 'Region' parameter for using browsing tool.

Bridge uses only s3a protocol to load files.

Use . to specify the root directory as the partitioned directory.

Separate multiple paths with the , or ; characters.
For example: dir1/dir2 dir3/dir4 dir5

For example, -m 4G -f 100 -j -Dname=value -Xms1G

-m the maximum Java memory size whole number (e.g. -m 4G or -m 2500M ).
-s import system objects that are skipped by default (e.g. -s)
-v set environment variable(s) (e.g. -v var1=value -v var2="value with spaces").
-j the last option that is followed by Java command line options (e.g. -j -Dname=value -Xms1G).
-hadoop key1=val1;key2=val2 to manualy set hadoop configuration options
