Hi Siddhi,

PigStorage by default looks for ".pig_schema" under the input dir. If you would like to use a different filename, you would have to override PigStorage.getSchema(String location, Job job) and define a custom JsonMetadata object. You might want to start here.

Using a schema file location completely outside of data files would involve passing the appropriate "schema path" location to JsonMetadata.getSchema.
