Output Files

Output Files

The DTM generates output files when it runs mappings, mappings included in a workflow, profiles, SQL queries to an SQL data service, or web service operation requests. Based on transformation cache settings and target types, the DTM can create cache, reject, target, and temporary files.
By default, the DTM stores output files in the directories defined by execution options for the Data Integration Service.
Data objects and transformations in the Developer tool use system parameters to access the values of these Data Integration Service directories. By default, the system parameters are assigned to flat file directory, cache file directory, and temporary file directory fields.
For example, when a developer creates an Aggregator transformation in the Developer tool, the CacheDir system parameter is the default value assigned to the cache directory field. The value of the CacheDir system parameter is defined in the
Cache Directory
property for the Data Integration Service. Developers can remove the default system parameter and enter a different value for the cache directory. However, jobs fail to run if the Data Integration Service cannot access the directory.
In the Developer tool, developers can change the default system parameters to define different directories for each transformation or data object.
