Recommendations

Recommendations

As you develop a mapping, CLAIRE analyzes the mapping for potential errors and opportunities for improvement, and displays recommendations on the
Inbox
tab of the
Recommendations
view.
Each recommendation belongs to a category that identifies the type of the recommendation. For example, if the mapping flow contains a datatype mismatch from one transformation to another, the recommendation to fix the issue appears under the "Port type variance" category.
You can read the recommendation and implement it by manually editing the mapping. When you select the
Show Me
button, the Developer tool displays and highlights the interface where you can make the recommended changes. In addition, you can archive the recommendation or disable the recommendation category.
The following image shows recommendations in the
New
tab of the
Recommendations
view:
The image shows the Developer tool editor pane displaying a mapping that includes a Joiner transformation. On the right of the editor pane is the Recommendations view, numbered to show its elements.
The numbers in the image correspond to the following list of elements:
Element name

When CLAIRE finds a very large (more than 200) number of recommendations for a mapping, not all of the recommendations are visible in the default size of the Recommendations view even if you scroll to the bottom of the view. To work around this issue, expand the Recommendations view.
