Intelligent Structure Discovery process

Intelligent Structure Discovery
process

You can create an
intelligent structure
using
Intelligent Structure Discovery
.
After you provide a sample file,
Intelligent Structure Discovery
determines the underlying and repeating patterns of the data and creates a structure that represents the fields of data and their relationships. You can quickly model data for files whose structure is very hard, time consuming, and costly to find, such as log files, clickstreams, customer web access, error text files, or other internet, sensor, or device data that does not follow industry standards.
The following image shows the process by which Intelligent Structure Discovery deciphers the underlying patterns of data and creates a model of the data patterns:
This image shows unstuctured or structured data being deciphered by Intelligent Structure Discovery, which creates a model of the data.
After you save an
intelligent structure model
, you can associate it with a Structure Parser and use in a Data Integration mapping. You can export the
intelligent structure model
to use it with a data object in a data engineering mapping.
