Subject Is it possible to use $ characters in field names?
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2017 18:18:37 GMT
I am trying to build an avro schema for a NiFi flow that is going to insert
data into Mongo, and Mongo extended JSON requires the use of $ characters
in cases like this (to represent a date):

    "timestamp": {
        "$date": TIMESTAMP_LONG_HERE

I tried building a schema with that, and it failed saying there was an
invalid character in the schema.  just wanted to check and see if there was
a work around for this or if I'll have to choose another option.
