    Is XSD required in Informatica BDM Hierarchical to Relational Transformation

    Kaiquan Mah Active Member

      Hi all,


      Can I check whether an XSD is required to configure the Informatica BDM Hierarchical to Relational Transformation? Or would a XML be sufficient to configure the transformation?


      Based on this thread in 2014 (How to read XML files ?), I understand that an XSD is required if we wish to perform validation on data type and data length.


      Would it be possible to configure data type and data length requirements using an XML instead in Hierarchical to Relational Transformation? As for the number of tags, the XMLs we have on hand would contain all the root and element nodes - something which I believe can be a substitute for the XSD - correct me the understanding is otherwise.
