Scripts Overview

Scripts Overview

A Script performs complex transformations on input data, and writes output data. Create a Script on the
Objects
tab of the Data Processor transformation. Use the IntelliScript editor to view a Script, add and configure components, and set the startup component for a Script.
Use a Script to read one or more documents in any format, such as HL7, PDF, XML, or Word. You can write one or more documents in any format. You can write the output of a Script to the local file system, or you can return the output through output ports of the Data Processor transformation.
A Script is made up of components that define input and output documents, business logic, variables that temporarily hold data, and configuration settings. The components are arranged in a hierarchical tree. When the transformation runs a Script, it begins processing in the component that you set as the startup component.
When you configure a Script, you set example sources that contain sample data for each input port. When you run the transformation from the
Data Viewer
view, the transformation reads the example source documents. When you run the transformation in a mapping, the transformation reads the documents that it receives through its input ports.
The Data Processor transformation that contains the Script must reference a schema for each XML document that the Script reads or writes.
