Mapping Task Properties

Mapping Task Properties

Set mapping and Mapping task properties to specify where the workflow runs Mapping tasks.
When you include a Mapping task in a cluster workflow, you must identify the cluster where you want the mapping to run.
The following table describes the Cluster Identifier property values that you can configure in the Advanced properties of a Mapping task:
Cluster Identifier Property
Description
Auto Deploy
Runs the mapping on the cluster that the workflow creates. The Data Integration Service generates a temporary cluster connection based on the connection associate with the cluster provisioning configuration.
The connection property in the mapping must also be set to Auto Deploy.
Blank
Runs the mapping on the cluster configured in the cluster connection associated with the mapping.
The connection property in the mapping must be set to a cluster connection associated with a cluster configuration. Validation fails if it is associated with the cluster provisioning configuration.
Assign to task input
Accept input from a source other than the Create Cluster task.
Use this option if you configure input properties to use parameters.
If the Mapping task and the Create Cluster task contain different values for the cluster identifier, the Create Cluster task value takes precedence.
