Blockchain Data Object Overview Properties

Blockchain Data Object Overview Properties

Overview properties are general properties for the blockchain data object.
The properties are populated according to the REST API. If you change a property value in the Developer tool, make the same changes on the blockchain if necessary.

General Properties

The following table describes the general properties for the blockchain data object:
Property
Description
Name
Name of the blockchain data object.
Description
Description of the blockchain data object.
Connection
Name of the blockchain connection.

Objects Properties

The following table describes the properties for each transaction:
Property
Description
Name
Name of the transaction in the Informatica environment.
Description
Description of the transaction.
Native Name
Native name of the transaction on the blockchain.
Path Information
Path of the transaction on the REST web service.

Columns Properties

The following table describes the properties for the columns in an asset that a transaction operates on:
Property
Description
Name
Name of the column.
Native Name
Native name of the column on the blockchain.
If you change the native name in the Developer tool, you must also change the name of the column on the blockchain.
Type
Data type of the column.
Precision
Maximum number of significant digits for numeric data types, or the maximum number of characters for string data types.
You can edit the precision based on your requirements. If the data exceeds the precision, the data is truncated.
Scale
Scale of the data type.
Advanced Properties
Advanced properties that are set according to the REST API.
The advanced property
isRequired=true
is set for columns that are required.
Access Type
Access type for the column.
The Read access type indicates that you can use the column only as a source.
The Read and Write access type indicates that you can use the column as both a source and a target. For example, you must have read and write access to the column that you reference in a lookup condition.
The Write access type indicates that you can use the column only as a target.
Description
Description of the column.
If the REST API restricts column values, the description lists the values that are valid.

Advanced Properties

The following table describes advanced properties for each transaction:
Property
Description
verb
HTTP method, such as GET, POST, PUT, or DELETE.
Producer Content Type
Content type of the request that is sent to the web service.
The content type must be application/json.
Consumer Content Type
Content type of the response that the web service returns.
The content type must be application/json.
EndpointUrl
Endpoint URL that is used to access an asset on the blockchain.
Advanced Properties
List of advanced properties for the transaction.
You can configure the following advanced properties:
  • baseUrl. The base URL to access assets on the blockchain. The base URL must match the beginning of the endpoint URL.
  • X-API-KEY. Required if you authenticate to the REST server using an API key. When you create a blockchain data object, the value that populates the property X-API-KEY is random. You must edit the value or remove the property.
Other advanced properties are populated according to the REST API. For example, headers appear as advanced properties.
If you configure advanced properties in the blockchain data object, you can override the values in the blockchain connection.
