also, im scanning the docs, but may be looking in the wrong place. how does Airbyte handle failures for both ingestion and output, and are there any retry mechanisms in place? is there some notion of atomic operations? can a sync fail partially, fully, etc?

there are 3 retries, not sure if that setting can be overridden
ive found that sync fail fully, ie if the extract works and normalization fails, the next exec will start from the beginning

last week some contributor made this possible to configurate using env variable 😃

@[DEPRECATED] Marcos Marx anything on whether failures are partial or full (sort of like a DB transaction)?

it depends on your sync type, if you use overwritte this is not a problem. but airbyte is not atomic it'll guarantee at least one delivery message
