System-Defined Faults

System-Defined Faults

The Data Integration Service generates a system-defined fault when it encounters a system error. When a system error occurs, the Data Integration Service returns an error message in a system-defined fault.
For example, the Data Integration Service might return the following fault when a numeric input port receives data that is not numeric:
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <soapenv:Body> <soapenv:Fault> <faultcode>WSCMN_10022</faultcode> <faultstring>[WSCMN_10022] Mapping execution failed: [com.informatica.platform.ldtm.common.ExecutionException: [MPSVCCMN_10009] The Mapping Service Module [MappingService] encountered an exception with the following details: [LDTM_0072] [ERROR] XML parsing component [Input_S2R] message code: [66022], message body: A data conversion error occurred in field [customerID] of the transformation group [Operation]. The field contains the following data: [1100AA].].</faultstring> <detail> </detail> </soapenv:Fault> </soapenv:Body> </soapenv:Envelope>
The example uses SOAP 1.1.
You can return an error message to the web service client without a Fault transformation. You can raise a fault by calling the ABORT(msg) function in an Expression transformation. When you call an ABORT message, the Data Integration Service generates a system-defined fault message. The message that you pass into the ABORT function becomes the fault string in the system-defined fault.
