Release 5.0.1



When data is imported:

  • Supported data types from the source are converted to data types supported by the application.
  • Types that are not supported but are recognized by the application are converted to String types.  
  • Types that cannot be read from the source due to technical reasons are converted to null values on import.

Tip: If you are having trouble getting your imported dataset to map to expected data types in the Designer Cloud powered by Trifacta platform , you can disable type inference for the individual dataset. For more information, see Import Data Page.

On export, unmapped types are converted to the equivalent of strings.

Tip: You can import a target schema to assist in lining up your columns with the expected target target. For more information, see Overview of Target Matching.
