DataProcessing

The data structure used to specify the data to be used for inference in a batch transform job and to associate the data that is relevant to the prediction results in the output. The input filter provided allows you to exclude input data that is not needed for inference in a batch transform job. The output filter provided allows you to include input data relevant to interpreting the predictions in the output from the job. For more information, see Associate Prediction Results with their Corresponding Input Records.

InputFilter

A JSONPath expression used to select a portion of the input data to pass to the algorithm. Use the InputFilter parameter to exclude fields, such as an ID column, from the input. If you want Amazon SageMaker to pass the entire input dataset to the algorithm, accept the default value $.

Examples: "$", "$[1:]", "$.features"

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 63.

Required: No

JoinSource

Specifies the source of the data to join with the transformed data. The valid values are None and Input. The default value is None, which specifies not to join the input with the transformed data. If you want the batch transform job to join the original input data with the transformed data, set JoinSource to Input.

For JSON or JSONLines objects, such as a JSON array, Amazon SageMaker adds the transformed data to the input JSON object in an attribute called SageMakerOutput. The joined result for JSON must be a key-value pair object. If the input is not a key-value pair object, Amazon SageMaker creates a new JSON file. In the new JSON file, and the input data is stored under the SageMakerInput key and the results are stored in SageMakerOutput.

For CSV files, Amazon SageMaker combines the transformed data with the input data at the end of the input data and stores it in the output file. The joined data has the joined input data followed by the transformed data and the output is a CSV file.

Type: String

Valid Values: Input | None

Required: No

OutputFilter

A JSONPath expression used to select a portion of the joined dataset to save in the output file for a batch transform job. If you want Amazon SageMaker to store the entire input dataset in the output file, leave the default value, $. If you specify indexes that aren't within the dimension size of the joined dataset, you get an error.

Examples: "$", "$[0,5:]", "$['id','SageMakerOutput']"

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 63.

Required: No
