RunMapplet

RunMapplet

The
RunMapplet
action runs a mapplet. The output of
RunMapplet
is read into the data holder specified in the RunMapplet action.
Use the
RunMapplet
action to perform tasks such as data masking, data quality, data lookup, and other activities usually related to relational transformation, without the necessity to convert data to relational format and then back to hierarchical format.
The RunMapplet action only can be used to call passive mapplets.
The output parameters must be specified in the same order as appears in the mapplet target ports.
The following table describes the properties of the
RunMapplet
action:
Property
Description
inputs
Specifies the input values to be passed to the mapplet. The input parameters must be specified in the same order as they appear in the mapplet source ports.
mapplet_name
Indicates the mapplet to be run.
You must first add a reference in the
References
tab for any mapplet that you want to call with the RunMapplet action. For more information, see References.
outputs
Specifies where to store the output values returned from the mapplet. The output parameters must be specified in the same order as they appear in the mapplet target ports.
In the
OutputLocation
parameter, specify the following values:
  • data_holder
    : Specifies where to store the values that the mapplet returns.
  • initialization
    : When you test the transformation, the Data Processor transformation does not run the mapplet called by the RunMapplet action. You can specify a value to use as a temporary output string when you test the transformation during design time.
