The Metadata Structure step will read the fields of a stream and output their metadata.
If requested the row count of the stream will be calculated as well. This step can be used to document a stream structure using a Pentaho Data Integration transformation.


This step was first introduced in version 3.1.0-RC1 (PDI-1235)
