What is a schema?
A schema is a formal formatted representation of data as defined in the Sparrow database. Schema define the reproducible structure that is entered into the database and allow for subsequent transformations of data and connection to other databases.
Sparrow's import schemas interface with its database schemas but are conceptually separate. Sparrow's import infrastructure allows JSON with an appropriate schema structure to be imported using the API.

These schema examples are created using a simple API call.
Using schema for importing data
The API has examples of schemas
There is a command-line feature for seeing schema definitions:
sparrow show-interface <name-of-interface>.
This tells you how to assemble the correct JSON to import data.
