Preserving column names and data types when setting up a new connection in Airbyte

Summary

When setting up a new connection in Airbyte after switching from Fivetran, the sync process is removing columns created by Fivetran and changing some column names. The user is looking for the best way to maintain the original column names and data types from Fivetran.


Question

Hello! I am currently switching from fivetran to Airbyte. I am first copying all the tables from fivetran to keep the original data types and columns. However when I set up a new connection in Airbyte the sync completely gets rid of all the columns created by fivetran and and also changes the names of some columns as well. What is the best way to set up a new connection in Airbyte while keeping the column names and data types the same as they were originally created by fivetran?
