Defining the Message Type in Data Sources

Message types specify the format of the data within the message.


1.     Select the Message Type:


·         FIX

·         JSON

If JSON is selected, enter the Record Path which allows the identification of multiple records within the JSON document (e.g., myroot.items.item).

·         Text

If Text has been selected, confirm the Decimal Separator, Text Qualifier, Column Delimiter, and if the first row of the message includes column headings.

·         XML

2.     Define or set the columns that represent the sections of the message.




The column name of the source schema.

Fix Tag/JsonPath/Text Column Index/XPath

The Fix Tag/JsonPath/Text Column Index/XPath of the source schema.


The data type of the column. Can be a Text, Numeric, or Time

Date Format

To parse and format times with higher than millisecond precision, the format string needs to end with a period followed by sequence of uppercase S. There can be no additional characters following them.

For example: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS
