This section describes how to define a file connection and upload a JSON schema for an input file.

Now you can drag and drop the file connection or the schema of it from the Repository tree view onto the design workspace as a new tFileInputJSON or tExtractJSONFields component or onto an existing component to reuse the metadata. For further information about how to use the centralized metadata in a Job, see Using centralized metadata in a Job and Setting a repository schema in a Job.

To modify an existing file connection, right-click it from the Repository tree view, and select Edit JSON to open the file metadata setup wizard.

To add a new schema to an existing file connection, right-click the connection from the Repository tree view and select Retrieve Schema from the contextual menu.

To edit an existing file schema, right-click the schema from the Repository tree view and select Edit Schema from the contextual menu.
