I’ve observed in one of our ingestion specs such an odd thing:
The thing is that in the source data there is no such field as sourceMetric*.* There is the field targetMetric though. As result, after ingestion it works as it was:
Does anybody have any explanation for this, please? Is there any default, like if there is not sourceMetric, then use targetMetric?
I can’t find any references to
sourceMetric. Were you ingesting through the web console?
sourceMetric is just an example value for the fieldName.
Let me describe a better example.
Having a dataset with next data:
In other words, I could reproduce the description in red from below
Thank you for the clarification. It might be expected behavior? I found this:
@Nullable AggregatorFactory aggregatorFactory
this.fieldName = Preconditions.checkNotNull(fieldName, "fieldName is null");
//Note that, in general, name shouldn't be null, we are defaulting
//to fieldName here just to be backward compatible with 0.7.x
this.name = name == null ? fieldName : name;
this.aggregatorFactory = aggregatorFactory;
Thanks for response.
It does not seem to be the case because we have both fields (name and fieldName) set in the spec. I guess it should be somewhere in the code where the hadoop job effectively reads the values of name/fieldName fields.
