Configuring hierarchical output group and fields

Configuring hierarchical output group and fields

Uou can create and modify the output group and output fields for hierarchical output.
After you add incoming fields to an output group, you can select an output field name to modify the fields. You can also add and define output fields manually.

Name and Type

The following table describes the properties for hierarchical output fields:
Child Of
The parent field or group that this field belongs to. The name structure describes the group, parent fields, and struct name. For example:
The name of the current output group or field.
The data type of the current field. For hierarchical output, you can choose either a primitive or complex data type.
The total number of significant digits in the field.
The number of digits to the right of the decimal point.
Array Element Type
The data type of the current array element.
Array Element Precision
The precision for the current array element. Used when creating the target data.
Array Element Scale
The scale for the current array element. Used when creating the target data.
Struct Name
The struct name for the current struct field.
Element Struct Name
The element struct name for the current array of structs field.
Optional description of the field and its usage.
The output field properties that appear depend on the data type.

Aggregate Options

All output fields except for parent fields have aggregation options that you can set. The following table describes the aggregate options:
Use this field to aggregate values in an output field array.
Select this property to aggregate output data into the current field.
Output Field
If you are aggregating, specify the sibling array with fields to aggregate. The array must be a child of the current output field or group.
