I am using JDBC Query consumer as my origin and Local FS as my destination. I need the number of rows fetched to be part of filename before closing(writing) the file. Similar pipeline is setup for Oracle CDC origin. I need rewcount to be written as filename, So that I can use that for validation in my downstream systems. Please help me if there is a way for this?! Thanks in advance.

The number of records that get written to a file depends on many attributes like Max Records in File, Max File Size (MB), Idle Timeout, Use Roll Attribute, Late Record Time Limit (secs) and possibly combinations of those attributes. (Also note that based on the configuration several output files could get created.) So, AFAIK, there's no easy way to get a count of records written to a specific file.

The two options you might want to explore are:

  1. Enable JDBC Query Consumer origin to produce events and then note record-count available via no-more-data event. For details, refer to the documentation.
  2. Use Notifications >> Webhook to get notified of attributes like PIPELINE_INPUT_RECORDS_COUNT and PIPELINE_OUPUT_RECORDS_COUNT among other things. For details, refer to the documentation.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Dash
