Blog: PaaS Community
Data Stitch has ASSIGN, APPEND and REMOVE operations. Some use-cases are easy to grasp; some others require a little thinking… On this blog I‘ll explain behaviors I deem they are not straightforward to derive the outcome for using Data Stitch in a OIC Orchestration:

· Appending instances into an unbounded element and how to complete the data.
I assume you are familiar with XPath Expressions and XSD Schemas, because there is a lot a lingo in this post…
You will not see many screen shots. My goal is to give you the concepts so you become a good data “tailor?”
