Data Types in Input and Output Ports

Data Types in Input and Output Ports

The data types in corresponding input and output ports in the Python transformation must be the same. If the data types are not the same, convert the data type in the Python code.
For example, you create an input port with the integer data type and an output port with the string data type. You define the Python code to process the data in the input port and write the data to the output port. In the Python code, you can use the Python function
str()
to convert the integer data type in the input port and write the output as a string data type in the output port.
