Default Output Port

Default Output Port

The Data Processor transformation has one output port by default. When you create relational output, you can define groups of related output ports instead of the default output port. When you define an additional output port in a Script component, the Developer tool adds an additional output port to the transformation.
Configure one of the following output types for a default output port:
Buffer
The Data Processor transformation returns XML through the Output port. Choose the Buffer file type when you parse documents or when you map XML to other XML documents in the Data Processor transformation.
File
The Data Integration Service returns an output file name in the Output port for each source instance or row. The Data Processor transformation component writes the output file instead of returning data through the Data Processor transformation output ports.
When you select a File output port, the Developer tool creates an Output_Filename input port. You can pass a file name into the Output filename port. The Data Processor transformation creates the output file with a name that it receives in this port.
If the output file name is blank, the Data Integration Service returns a row error. When an error occurs, the Data Integration Service writes a null value to the Output port and returns a row error.
Choose the File output type when you transform XML to a binary data file such as a PDF file or a Microsoft Excel file.
