Hey when you say local file system you mean that as a source? As far as I see the error is related to the schema generation where it is causing an issue, Is it possible to share a sample file here so that we can test it?

Hi harshith,
Yes I am mentioned to local file system as source.
I am sharing the file which is we used.(Because of the forums upload module restirictions, I only add the extentions to the file, you can basicly remove the “.txt” from the full file name)

You can go to network tab and then select the failed response for the discover API


I hope you mean the Browser Developer Tools Network tab. I get the responce for “http://<server_ip>:8000/api/v1/sources/discover_schema”
