REST Web Service Consumer Transformation Input Mapping

REST Web Service Consumer Transformation Input Mapping

When you view the transformation ports, show the input mapping to view the method input hierarchy. When you show the input mapping, you can define input groups, define input ports, and map input ports to method input elements.
The input mapping includes the following areas:
Ports
Create the transformation input groups and input ports in the
Ports
area.
Method Input
The
Method Input
area shows the elements in the request message that the REST Web Service Consumer transformation sends to the web service. If you use a schema object to create the transformation, the schema object defines the method input hierarchy.
After you create input ports, map the input ports from the
Ports
area to the elements in the
Method Input
area. When you map an input port to an element in the method input, the location of the port appears in the Location column in the
Method Input
area.
The Developer tool maps elements in the first level of the method input to input ports when you choose to map the first level of the input hierarchy. The Developer tool also creates the ports to perform the mapping. If the first level of the hierarchy contains a multiple occurring parent element with one or more multiple occurring child elements, the Developer tool does not map the first level of the hierarchy.
You can choose to view the lines that connect the input ports to the elements in the method input.
