TransformByService

TransformByService

The
TransformByService
transformer runs a Data Processor transformation service on its input. The output of the transformer is the output of the service.
If you use the transformer to invoke a Parser service, the output of the transformer is an XML string.
The
TransformByService
transformer supports single-input services. Do not use it with a service that has multiple input ports.
The following table describes the properties of the
TransformByService
transformer:
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.
disable_automatic_encoding
Determines whether the Script applies the input and output encodings that are defined in the service. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Selected. The Script ignores the input and output encodings that are defined in the service.
  • Cleared. The Script applies the input and output encodings that are defined in the service.
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.
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.
parameters
Defines a list of initial values that the Script assigns to variables defined in the service. In each element of the list, specify the name of a variable and its value.
remark
A user-defined comment that describes the purpose or action of the component.
service_name
Defines the name of the service that runs on the input.
