Before you begin

Before setting up a NiFi dataflow to process Mainframe data encoded in the Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC) scheme between moving the data between your source and target, you must meet the following prerequisites.

  • Ensure that Cobol copybooks describing the schemas of the tables are available in NiFi.

  • Ensure that binary files exported from the Mainframe are available in NiFi.
