  • Avro
  • Flat
Use Schema
Specify the XSD schema for the XML format, the sample JSON for the JSON format.
Specify a .avsc file for the Avro format or a sample file for the Flat format.
Use Intelligent Structure Model
Displays the intelligent structure model associated with the complex file. You can select a different model.
If you disable the column projection, the intelligent structure model associated with the data object is removed. If you want to associate an intelligent structure model with the data object again, enable the column projection and click
Select Model
For more information on intelligent structure models, see the
Informatica Big Data Management User Guide
