EmbeddedSerializer

EmbeddedSerializer

The
EmbeddedSerializer
serialization anchor activates a secondary
Serializer
, which writes its output in the same output document.
The following table describes the properties of the
EmbeddedSerializer
serialization anchor:
Property
Description
disabled
Determines whether the Script ignores the component and all of the child components. Use this property to test, debug, and modify a Script. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. The Script ignores the component.
  • Cleared. The Script applies the component.
The default is cleared.
name
A descriptive label for the component. This label appears in the log file and the
Events
view. Use the
name
property to identify the component that caused the event.
on_fail
The action to take if the component fails. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Cleared. Take no action.
  • CustomLog. Write to the user log.
  • LogError. Write an error message to the engine log.
  • LogInfo. Write an information message to the engine log.
  • LogWarning. Write a warning message to the engine log.
  • NotifyFailure. Send a notification.
Default is cleared. For more information about handling component failures, see Failure Handling.
optional
Determines whether a component failure causes the parent component to fail. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. Component failure does not cause the parent component to fail.
  • Cleared. Component failure causes the parent component to fail.
Default is cleared. For more information about component failure, see Failure Handling.
remark
A user-defined comment that describes the purpose or action of the component.
schema_connections
Connects the data holders that are referenced in the secondary Serializer to the data holders that are referenced in the parent Serializer. The property contains a list of
Connect
subcomponents that define the correspondences. For more information, see Connect.
If all the data holders in the main and secondary Serializers are identical, you can omit this property. If there are any differences between the data holders, you must connect the data holders explicitly, even the ones that are identical.
Serializer
Defines the name of a secondary Serializer that is defined at the global level of the Script.
