Permitted Collection Child Definitions
  Child API Type Description
<MetadataInstance /> AstMetadataInstanceNode
Metadata instance objects include all of the metadata specifications for a given metadata model. Note that there may be many metadata instance objects for each metadata model. The metadata model specifies the structure and rules for a collection of metadata. The metadata instance specifies the actual metadata within that model.
<MetadataModel /> AstMetadataModelNode
A metadata model defines all configuration necessary for an end-user to specify and validate metadata that will be used by downstream BimlScripts to automatically generate assets.
<OfflineSchema /> AstOfflineSchemaNode
The AstOfflineSchemaNode stores all information necessary to build a package that targets a specific data source without having to connect to the data source at build time. It is essentially a cache of offline schema items, each containing column type information for a table or query result set.
