Subject Re: A Link Sink that writes to OAuth2.0 protected resource
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2017 14:30:11 GMT
Hi Hussein!

Your approach seems reasonable to me. The open() method will be called only once for the UDF
every time the job has started (and when the job is restored from failures also).

In our Sink, we are dealing with a system that uses OAuth 2.0. So the in the open() method
of the Sink we are getting the token and then we initialise the client that we can use in
order to write from Flink to that API. 

Is there a better approach to handle that? 

open() is a lifecycle method which I assume it will be called only once when creating a Sink,
correct? Are there any conditions that might trigger open() to be called not upon creations?

Thanks a lot for your help and time.
