Specifying the Type Configuration for a Struct Port

Specifying the Type Configuration for a Struct Port

The type configuration for a struct port requires a complex data type definition in the type definition library. Specify the complex data type definition that represents the schema of the struct data.
Before you specify the type configuration for the struct port, create or import a complex data type definition. You can also reference an existing complex data type definition in the type definition library.
  1. In the transformation, select the struct port for which you want to specify the type configuration.
  2. In the
    Type Configuration
    column, click the
    Open
    button.
    The
    Type Configuration
    dialog box appears:
    This screenshot shows the Type Configuration dialog box for a struct port. In the left-hand panel, you can expand your type definition library to view a list of your complex data types definitions. When you select the complex data type definition that you want to use, the right-hand panel shows the schema of the data in the definition.
  3. Select a complex data type definition from the list of definitions in the type definition library for the mapping or the mapplet.
  4. Click
    OK
    .
    On the
    Ports
    tab, the specified type configuration appears in the
    Type Configuration
    column of the struct port.
