Show available schemas

When you write a pipeline, you often reference field names. If you do not know the shape of your data, you can look up available schemas, i.e., the record types describing a table.

Many SQL databases have a SHOW TABLES command to show all available table names, and SHOW COLUMNS to display the individual fiels of a given table.

Similarly, our show operator offers the ability for introspection. Use show fields to display all schema fields, with with one field per event:

show fields | where schema == "zeek.dns" | write json -c
