Schema Basics


This topic covers general information about schemas, including when and where to use a schema, how schemas are processed, and menu actions that are available for all schemas.

These pages are included in this topic:

  • Schema Usage
    Whether a schema is used depends on the activity and if it is being used as a source or a target of a transformation. Whether you choose to define a schema in an activity or in a transformation depends on your use case.
  • Schema Regeneration
    Schemas may either be generated by the connector or defined by the user. This page provides information about regenerating schemas for both of these schema types.
  • Schema Processing
    When using a user-defined schema, some data may be converted during processing. This page describes how this data is converted.
  • Schema Actions Menu
    This page describes the actions available for schemas after they are created, accessible from the project pane or the transformation. These include deleting, viewing dependencies of, deploying, or configurable deploy of a schema, as well as editing the configuration of an activity providing a schema, editing a schema, or clearing a schema from a transformation.
