Commonly used terms in CDL are described below:

Commissions Stage Tables Temporary data storage area in Commissions where data from CDL is placed during export. Data is validated in the staging area before transferring into the Commissions tables and executing the pipeline. See Commissions Administrator online help for more details. 
CDL Job Each file that is transferred in an inbound or outbound transfer. 
Custom Inbound Custom Inbound allows you to load ad-hoc data from a file to a temporary table, then invokes a HANA stored procedure to transfer data from the temp tables to Commissions stage tables, and finally imports data to the Commissions tables through Commissions stage data import. 
CDL Secure Box CDL Inbound and outbound folders which are accessible using SFTP. Exported files are dropped off in the inbound folder and imported files are available for pick up in the outbound folder.
