Hi again, At which point is the table that an Airbyte destination inserts data into created? Is it the responsibility of the destination? Or is it expected to already exist? Thanks

Hi Eric, the destination tables are created and managed by Airbyte. The raw tables get created by the destination process, the final tables are created by the normalization process if you enable it. If you have further questions feel free to ask on our forum, we're more responsive there and your question will benefit the rest of the community.

Hey @Augustin Lafanechere (Airbyte) thanks for the reply. To give you some context, I am working on a multi-node destination for ClickHouse. The thing about it is, ClickHouse has a very specific way of dealing with tables across multiple nodes. In fact, I suspect the reason Airbyte can currently only work with a single node Clickhouse cluster is precisely because the tables need to be created
followed by the cluster name. If I as a developer cannot ensure this is done, there is no way for me to implement this destination. Surely I can affect the manner in which the final tables are created, right? Thanks again for your time, Eric
