Using intelligent structure models in mappings

To use an intelligent structure model in a mapping, add a Structure Parser transformation or a Hierarchy Builder transformation to the mapping.
An intelligent structure model is required for Structure Parser transformations and is optional for Hierarchy Builder transformations.
When you configure the transformation, select or create an intelligent structure model, select the type of input that the transformation expects to receive, and the output that you pass to downstream transformations. The model can generate relational, XML, JSON, JSON Lines, or Hadoop format output.
For more information about the Structure Parser transformation and Hierarchy Builder transformations, see Transformations.
