What is a transformer

A Transformer is a collection of rules meant to transform a data file, so it can be stored in Beckon and structured to fit the desired data model. Transformers fit in the "T" part of the "ETL" data warehousing process - Extract, Transform, and Load.


Beckon transformers are specified as JSON files containing the transformer rules and metadata. To transform your data in Beckon, you may use a standard transformer that Beckon has created, or write your own custom transformer.
