Flume Avro File Incorrect Schema

Hi Friends,

 

I need one help regarding Avro file processing using Flume and Kafka.
In short, I am reading a json file, using interceptor and selector splitting specific values into avro sink,
and then reading that avro source to write to hdfs as avro file.

 

The flume configurations I am using are given below.

 

The problem I am facing is, the avro file is getting written to hdfs with only header and body.
So by using "java -jar avro-tools-1.8.2.jar getschema" option I am not getting desired schema of the avro file.
Every time it is showing only "header" and "body" as 2 fields.

 

Please suggest how to resolve this problem. It is very urgent.
