Hi everyone - running into a situation where the JSON responses I get are all string types regardless of what the API docs say they're supposed to be. My worry is this is going to throw all sorts of schema validation errors when I run this with
meltano elt
. So my question is - is there a good pattern for type casting the data in transit based on the JSON schema or do I just accept that everything is going to land in the database as strings and deal with it later?
