Creating a Persistent Input File Manually

Creating a Persistent Input File Manually

If you want to run
commands against a set of objects that you cannot identify through commands such as ExecuteQuery, you can manually create an input file.
Use the following rules and guidelines when you create a persistent input file:
  • Enter “none” for the encoded ID. The
    commands get the object information from the other arguments in the records.
  • For source objects, enter the object name as <DBD_name>.<source_name>.
  • For objects, such as mappings, that do not have a sub_type, enter “none” as object_subtype, or leave it blank. For more information about valid transformations and task types, see Listing Object Types.
  • For versioned repositories, enter the version number of the object you want, or enter “LATEST” to use the latest version of the object.
  • For non-versioned repositories, leave the version_number argument blank.
  • For object types, such as targets, that are not reusable or non-reusable, drop the argument.
  • You cannot include non-reusable objects. You can specify the reusable parent of the non-reusable object.
    For example, you want to list the object dependencies for a non-reusable Filter transformation. You can specify the mapping that is the parent object of the transformation:
    The mapping m_seqgen_map is the reusable parent of the Filter transformation. The command runs successfully when you specify the reusable parent.
When you use a manually created persistent input file, the Repository Service returns a message indicating that the ID is not valid. This is an informational message. The Repository Service recognizes that this is a manually created input file and can process the command with “none” as the ID.
