I was trying to extract data from a JSON file using USQL. Either the query runs successfully without producing any output data or results in "vertex failed fast error".

The JSON file looks like:

{

  "results": [

    {

      "name": "Sales/Account",

      "id": "7367e3f2-e1a5-11e5-80e8-0933ecd4cd8c",

      "deviceName": "HP",

      "deviceModel": "g6-pavilion",

      "clientip": "0.41.4.1"

    },

    {

      "name": "Sales/Account",

      "id": "c01efba0-e0d5-11e5-ae20-af6dc1f2c036",

      "deviceName": "acer",

      "deviceModel": "veriton",

      "clientip": "10.10.14.36"

    }

  ]

}

And my U-SQL script is

REFERENCE ASSEMBLY [Newtonsoft.Json];

REFERENCE ASSEMBLY [Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats];

DECLARE @in string="adl://xyz.azuredatalakestore.net/todelete.json";

DECLARE @out string="adl://xyz.azuredatalakestore.net/todelete.tsv";

@trail2=EXTRACT results string FROM @in USING new Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats.Json.JsonExtractor();

@jsonify=SELECT Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats.Json.JsonFunctions.JsonTuple(results,"name","id","deviceName","deviceModel","clientip") AS rec FROM @trail2;

@logSchema=SELECT rec["name"] AS sysName,

              rec["id"] AS sysId,

              rec["deviceName"] AS domainDeviceName,

              rec["deviceModel"] AS domainDeviceModel,

              rec["clientip"] AS domainClientIp 

       FROM @jsonify;

OUTPUT @logSchema TO @out USING Outputters.Tsv();

The problem seems to be with your @trail2, output was in json array  "[{...},{...}]", which cannot be parsed by the JsonFunction.

Try to do as shown below by:

REFERENCE ASSEMBLY [Newtonsoft.Json];

REFERENCE ASSEMBLY [Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats];

DECLARE @in string="adl://xyz.azuredatalakestore.net/todelete.json";

DECLARE @out string="adl://xyz.azuredatalakestore.net/todelete.tsv";

DECLARE @mid string="adl://xyz.azuredatalakestore.net/intermediate.txt";

@trail2=EXTRACT results string FROM @in USING new Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats.Json.JsonExtractor();

OUTPUT @trail2 TO @mid USING Outputters.Text(quoting:false);

@jsonify=EXTRACT name string,

                id string, 

                deviceName string ,

                deviceModel string,

                clientip string

FROM @mid USING new Microsoft.Analytics.Samples.Formats.Json.JsonExtractor();

@logSchema=SELECT name AS sysName,

              id AS sysId,

              deviceName AS domainDeviceName,

              deviceModel AS domainDeviceModel,

              clientip AS domainClientIp 

       FROM @jsonify;

OUTPUT @logSchema TO @out USING Outputters.Tsv();
