Configure the Job to aggregate some task assignment data in a CSV file based on a dynamic schema column using the tAggregateRow component.

Then this Job displays the aggregated data on the console using the tLogRow component and writes it into an output CSV file using the tFileOutputDelimited component.


  1. Double-click the tFileInputDelimited component to open its Basic settings view.
  2. In the File name/Stream field, specify the path to the CSV file that holds the following task assignment data, D:/tasks.csv in this example.
  3. In the Header field, enter the number of rows to be skipped in the beginning of the file, 1 in this example.
    Note that the dynamic schema feature is only supported in the Built-In mode and requires the input file to have a header row.
  4. Click the button next to Edit schema to open the schema dialog box and define the schema by adding two columns, task of String type and other of Dynamic type. When done, click OK to save the changes and close the schema dialog box.
    Note that the dynamic column must be defined in the last row of the schema. For more information about dynamic schema, see Dynamic schema.
  5. Double-click the tAggregateRow component, and on its Basic settings view, click the Sync columns button to retrieve the schema from the preceding component.
  6. Add one row in the Group by table by clicking the button below it, and select other from both the Output column and Input column position column fields to group the input data by the other dynamic column.
    Note that the dynamic column aggregation can be carried out only for the grouping operation.
  7. Add one row in the Operations table and define the operation to be carried out. In this example, the operation function is list. Then select task from both the Output column and Input column position column fields to list the entries in the task column in the grouping result.
  8. Double-click the tLogRow component to open its Basic settings view, and then select Table (print values in cells of a table) in the Mode area for better readability of the result.
  9. Double-click the tFileOutputDelimited component to open its Basic settings view, and in the File Name field, specify the path to the CSV file into which the aggregated data will be written, D:/tasks_aggregated.csv in this example.
  10. Select the Include Header check box to include the header of each column in the CSV file.
