Configuration of Smarts

Segna automatically and intelligently predicts many of the decisions involved in the data importing process. For certain APIs, the predictions made can be configured between "smart" and a default guess.

These are configured using the configureSmartGuessing key of our Start job API. Smart behaviour is enabled by default, but can be configured for the following steps:

Smart behaviourNon-smart behaviour
Field matchingInput columns in the uploaded data are intelligently mapped to the fields set on the pipeline schema.Only exact mappings are possible (column name and field name must match exactly).
Field data typesThe data type of each field is intelligently inferred based on properties of the data and the schema set on the pipeline.Each field is assumed to be of type rich text.
