Macro Transformation

Macro Transformation

Effective in version 10.4.1, you can use the Macro transformation in Informatica mappings. The Macro transformation adds dynamic functionality to transformation logic contained in a mapplet.
Before you use a Macro transformation, create a mapplet with the transformation logic that you want to accept dynamic input. Then add the Macro transformation to a dynamic mapping and use the mapplet you created as the macro instruction.
For example, you want to read data from a dynamic source, perform data encryption, and then write the encrypted data to a target. First create a mapplet that performs the encryption using a Data Masking transformation. Then create a mapping that reads from and writes to your data sources. Add a Macro transformation to the dynamic mapping and select the Data Masking mapplet as the macro instruction.
For more information, refer to the "Macro Transformation" chapter in the
Informatica 10.4.1 Developer Transformation Guide
