Input Transformation Ports Tab

Input Transformation Ports Tab

Define output groups, define output ports, and map nodes from the operation input to the output ports on
Ports
tab.
Choose to show the ports if you do not need to view the operation input hierarchy. When you show the ports, you can define groups, define ports, and map nodes from the operation input to the output ports. To map a node from the operation input to an output port, click the field in the
Location
column and expand the hierarchy in the
Select Location
dialog box. Then, choose a node from the hierarchy.
Choose to show the input mapping to view the operation input hierarchy. The left side of the tab is the
Operation Input
area and the right side of the tab is the
Ports
area. The
Operation Input
area shows the SOAP request message hierarchy. You can define the output ports in the
Ports
area. When you map a node from the operation input to an output port, the location of the node appears in the
Location
column in the
Operation Input
area.
When you show the input mapping, you can choose to display the output ports in a hierarchy. You can also choose to view the lines that connect the input ports to the nodes in the operation input.
The Developer tool maps nodes in the first level of the operation input to output ports when you choose to map the first level of the hierarchy. The Developer tool also creates the output ports that is requires to map the data. If the first level of the hierarchy contains a multi-occurring parent node with one or more multi-occurring child nodes, the Developer tool does not create the ports or map the first level of the hierarchy.
