> I am working on a specific use case where I don't know the schema while 
> writing the GenericRecords' PCollection to File system. Here's how the use 
> case works:
>  * My dataflow listens to Pubsub's subscription and gets the message in this 
> format : 
> {code:java}
> // {"schema" : <schema_id>, "payload" : "<payload>"}
> {code}
>  * It then extracts the id, looks up schema registry and gets the schema for 
> a specific elelemt
>  * The payload is then deserialised into GenericRecord
>  * PCollection of these records is forwarded to BigQuery writer and it gets 
> written to BigQuery
>  * It then is passed to Storage writer that writes to file system using AvroIO
> Now, I am struggling with the last step as AvroIO expects a schema whereas I 
> do not know schema at compile time. All I have is a bunch of elements with 
> schema id embedded.
> Is there any way for AvroIO to write the records to FileSystem without 
> schema? If not, do I have any other alternatives (formats) to write to file 
> system?
