Script Ports Overview

Script Ports Overview

A Script port specifies the input or output of a Script, such as a source document or an output document.
For example, in a
Parser
component, the values of the
example_source
and
sources_to_extract
properties are input ports.
In some components, the Script ports are implicitly defined. For example, the default output file of a Parser is the
output.xml
file. You do not need to define an output port that refers to the
output.xml
file.
By default, each Script has one input port and one output port. You can configure additional input and output ports. When you create additional input or output ports in a Script, the Developer tool adds additional ports in the Data Processor transformation.
