Basic settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields that will be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or remote in the Repository.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion.

    If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the Repository Content window.

In the RPC context, the schema corresponds to the output parameters. If two parameters are meant to be returned, then the schema should contain two columns.
