Mapping the Method Output to Output Ports

Mapping the Method Output to Output Ports

When you show the transformation output mapping, you can define output groups, define output ports, and map method output elements to output ports.
  1. Open a REST Web Service Consumer transformation.
  2. In the
    Ports
    view, show the output mapping.
  3. To add an output group or port to the
    Ports
    area, use one of the following methods:
    Method
    Description
    Drag an element.
    Drag a group or a child element in the
    Method Output
    area to an empty column in the
    Ports
    area. If you drag a group to the
    Ports
    area, the Developer tool adds a group without ports.
    Manually add a group or port.
    To add a group, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button and then click
    Group
    . To add a port, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button, and then click
    Field
    .
    Drag a port from another transformation.
    In the editor, drag a port from another transformation to the REST Web Service Consumer transformation.
    Copy a port.
    Select ports from another transformation and copy them to the
    Ports
    area. To copy ports, you can use keyboard shortcuts or you can use the
    Copy
    and
    Paste
    buttons in the Developer tool.
  4. If you manually create a port or you copy a port from another transformation, click the
    Location
    column in the
    Ports
    area, and choose an element from the list.
  5. To clear the locations of ports, use one of the following methods:
    Method
    Description
    Click
    Clear
    .
    Select one or more ports in the
    Ports
    area, and click
    Clear
    .
    Delete the lines that connect elements to ports.
    Select one or more lines that connect the elements in the method output to the output ports, and press
    Delete
    .
